Anna Eleanor Roosevelt

Eleanor Roosevelt was born in New York City on October 11, 1884, daughter of lovely Anna
Hall and Elliott Roosevelt, younger brother of Theodore. When her mother died in 1892, the
children went to live with Grandmother Hall; her adored father died only two years later.
Attending a distinguished school in England gave her, at 15, her first chance to develop
self-confidence among other girls.


Eleanor married her fifth cousin, Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Tthey became the parents of
six children. In World War 1, she became active in the American Red Cross and in volunteer
work in Navy hospitals. Franklin Roosevelt was stricken with polio in 1921. Mrs. Roosevelt
became active in politics both to help him maintain his interests and to assert her own
personality and goals. She was in the League of Women Voters, and the Women's Trade Union
League, and worked for the Women's Division of the New York State Democratic Committee.
She helped to found Val-Kill Industries, a furniture factory in Hyde Park, New York, and
taught at the Todhunter School, a private girls' school in New York City.


Franklin D. Roosevelt became President in 1933. Eleanor Roosevelt was an active First Lady
who traveled around the nation, visiting relief projects, surveying working and living
conditions, and then reporting to the President. She added her own political and social
influence. She became active with helping the poor and minorities. During World War II,
she visited England and the South Pacific for good will with the Allies and boost the
morale of US servicemen overseas.


After President Roosevelt's death, Mrs. Roosevelt was in the United States Delegation to
the United Nations General Assembly, a position she held until 1953. She was chairman of
the Human Rights Commission during the drafting of the Universal Declaration of Human
Rights.


Eleanor Roosevelt was a popular speaker and lecturer in person and on radio and
television. She was a writer with many articles and books. What was most interesting about
Eleanor Roosevelt was that she could do all those things in one day. The next day she
would go and do those things all over again. What amazes me is how she could do all of
those things in one day because that is something I could not do.


When Anna was a baby her mother called her ugly and her father called her a gift from
heaven. When Eleanor was older, her mother and father would go out to parties. One day her
father took her to a party where she saw all the boys wearing ragged and ripped clothing,
