About First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt
Once a shy and insecure child, Eleanor Roosevelt grew up to become one of the most important and beloved First Ladies and female leaders of the 20th century.
Eleanor Roosevelt was the niece of one US President, Theodore Roosevelt, and married a man who would become another US president, Franklin D. Roosevelt. Eleanor Roosevelt was an American political figure, a diplomat and an activist. She served as the First Lady of the United States from 1933 to 1945, making her the longest serving First Lady of the United States. (Her Husband served four terms in office.)
Born on October 11, 1884, Eleanor experienced tremendous loss at a young age. Her mother died in 1892 (when she was 8 yrs old) and her father followed suit two years later when she was 10 yrs old, leading to her being placed under the care of her maternal grandmother who was apparently really hard on her.
Years later In 1905, after a long courtship, she married her distant cousin Franklin Delano Roosevelt, a charming, Harvard graduate in his first year of law school at Columbia University. Her uncle and close relative, President Theodore Roosevelt, walked her down the aisle. The couple went on to have six children.
When her husband took office as president in 1933, Eleanor dramatically redefined the role of the first lady. She was not one to stay in the background and handle only domestic matters, she gave press conferences and dedicated her life for human rights, children's causes, and women's issues. Eleanor focused on helping the country's poor, she stood against racial discrimination, and during World War II she traveled abroad to visit U.S. troops. She served in the role of first lady until April 12, 1945.
Eleanor Roosevelt captured the imagination of admirers from all over the globe. Her time as first lady has set new standards by which other presidential spouses are measured. It is because of Eleanor Roosevelt that the role of first lady took on a greater significance and visibility than ever before.
