Having known all of the twentieth century's previous First Ladies, she was seriously depressed at having to assume the role, which had traditionally been restricted to domesticity and hostessing. With support from Howe and Hickok, Roosevelt set out to redefine the position.
According to her biographer Blanche Wiesen Cook , she became "the most controversial First Lady in United States history" in the process.
She was the first presidential spouse to hold regular press conferences and in became the first to speak at a national party convention. Roosevelt maintained a heavy travel schedule in her twelve years in the White House, frequently making personal appearances at labor meetings to assure Depression-era workers that the White House was mindful of their plight. In one famous cartoon of the time from The New Yorker magazine June 3, , satirizing a visit she had made to a mine, an astonished coal miner, peering down a dark tunnel, says to a co-worker, "For gosh sakes, here comes Mrs.
In early , the " Bonus Army ", a protest group of World War I veterans, marched on Washington for the second time in two years, calling for their veteran bonus certificates to be awarded early. The previous year, President Hoover had ordered them dispersed, and the US Army cavalry charged and bombarded the veterans with tear gas. Also in after she became First Lady, a rose was discovered and named after Roosevelt, with the name Mrs.
Franklin D. Roosevelt Rosa x hybrida "Mrs. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall". The American Youth Congress was formed in to advocate for youth rights in U. Roosevelt's relationship with the AYC eventually led to the formation of the National Youth Administration , a New Deal agency in the United States, founded in , that focused on providing work and education for Americans between the ages of 16 and Speaking of the NYA in the s, Roosevelt expressed her concern about ageism, stating that "I live in real terror when I think we may be losing this generation.
We have got to bring these young people into the active life of the community and make them feel that they are necessary. Roosevelt was in attendance at the hearings and afterward invited the subpoenaed witnesses to board at the White House during their stay in Washington D.
First Lady of the United States
Joseph P. Lash was one of her boarders.
The President admonished them to condemn not merely the Nazi regime but all dictatorships. Afterwards, many of the same youth picketed the White House as representatives of the American Peace Mobilization. Among them was Joseph Cadden, one of Roosevelt's overnight boarders. Roosevelt's chief project during her husband's first two terms was the establishment of a planned community in Arthurdale, West Virginia.
After an initial, disastrous experiment with prefab houses , construction began again in to Roosevelt's specifications, this time with "every modern convenience", including indoor plumbing and central steam heat. Families occupied the first fifty homes in June, and agreed to repay the government in thirty years' time. After losing a community vote, Roosevelt recommended the creation of other communities for the excluded black and Jewish miners. Roosevelt remained a vigorous fundraiser for the community for several years, as well as spending most of her own income on the project.
Conservatives condemned it as socialist and a "communist plot", while Democratic members of Congress opposed government competition with private enterprise. Later commentators generally described the Arthurdale experiment as a failure. But I do. During Franklin's administration, Roosevelt became an important connection to the African-American population in the era of segregation. Despite the President's desire to placate Southern sentiment, Roosevelt was vocal in her support of the civil rights movement.
After her experience with Arthurdale and her inspections of New Deal programs in Southern states, she concluded that New Deal programs were discriminating against African-Americans, who received a disproportionately small share of relief money. Roosevelt became one of the only voices in her husband's administration insisting that benefits be equally extended to Americans of all races.
Roosevelt also broke with tradition by inviting hundreds of African-American guests to the White House. Her White House invitation to the students became an issue in Franklin's re-election campaign. She was involved by being "the eyes and the ears"  of the New Deal. She looked to the future and was committed to social reform.
One of those programs helped working women receive better wages. The New Deal also placed women into less machine work and more white collar work. Women did not have to work in the factories making war supplies because men were coming home so they could take over the long days and nights women had been working to contribute to the war efforts. Roosevelt brought unprecedented activism and ability to the role of the First Lady. In contrast to her usual support of African-American rights, the " sundown town " Eleanor , in West Virginia, was named for her and was established in when she and Franklin visited the county and developed it as a test site for families.
As a "sundown town", like other Franklin Roosevelt towns around the nation such as Greenbelt , Greenhills , Greendale , Hanford , or Norris , it was for whites only. Roosevelt's support of African-American rights made her an unpopular figure among whites in the South. Rumors spread of "Eleanor Clubs" formed by servants to oppose their employers and "Eleanor Tuesdays" on which African-American men would knock down white women on the street, though no evidence has ever been found of either practice. Following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, , Roosevelt spoke out against Japanese-American prejudice , warning against the "great hysteria against minority groups.
On May 21, , Roosevelt visited Westmoreland Homesteads to mark the arrival of the community's final homesteader. Accompanying her on the trip was the wife of Henry Morgenthau Jr. I do not like charities," she had said earlier.

But cooperative communities such as Westmoreland Homesteads, she went on, offered an alternative to "our rather settled ideas" that could "provide equality of opportunity for all and prevent the recurrence of a similar disaster [depression] in the future. Roosevelt was an unprecedentedly outspoken First Lady who made far more use of the media than her predecessors; she held press conferences over the span of her husband's year presidency. She relaxed the rule only once, on her return from her Pacific trip. She also agreed at first that she would avoid discussing her views on pending congressional measures.
Still, the press conferences provided a welcome opportunity for the women reporters to speak directly with the First Lady, access that had been unavailable in previous administrations. Just before Franklin assumed the presidency in February , Roosevelt published an editorial in the Women's Daily News that conflicted so sharply with his intended public spending policies that he published a rejoinder in the following issue.
Bye , Roosevelt's literary agent , encouraged her to write the column. Beasley has argued that Roosevelt's publications, which often dealt with women's issues and invited reader responses, represented a conscious attempt to use journalism "to overcome social isolation" for women by making "public communication a two-way channel". Roosevelt also made extensive use of radio. She was not the first First Lady to broadcast—her predecessor, Lou Henry Hoover, had done that already.
But Hoover did not have a regular radio program, whereas Roosevelt did. She first broadcast her own programs of radio commentary beginning on July 9, She also read a commercial from a mattress company, which sponsored the broadcast. Sponsored by a typewriter company, Roosevelt once again donated the money, giving it to the American Friends Service Committee, to help with a school it operated. As the U. She briefly considered traveling to Europe to work with the Red Cross , but was dissuaded by presidential advisers who pointed out the consequences should the president's wife be captured as a prisoner of war.
Quanza in August , but was refused on many other occasions. Roosevelt was also active on the home front. LaGuardia , working to give civilian volunteers expanded roles in war preparations. Also in , the short film Women in Defense , written by Roosevelt, was released. It was produced by the Office of Emergency Management and briefly outlines the way in which women could help prepare the country for the possibility of war. There is also a segment on the types of costumes women would wear while engaged in war work.
At the end of the film, the narrator explains women are vital to securing a healthy American home life and raising children "which has always been the first line of defense". In October , Roosevelt toured England, visiting with American troops and inspecting British forces. Her visits drew enormous crowds and received almost unanimously favorable press in both England and America. Roosevelt supported increased roles for women and African-Americans in the war effort, and began to advocate for women to be given factory jobs a year before it became a widespread practice.
She also flew with African-American chief civilian instructor C. Alfred "Chief" Anderson. Anderson had been flying since and was responsible for training thousands of rookie pilots; he took her on a half-hour flight in a Piper J-3 Cub. After the war, Roosevelt was a strong proponent of the Morgenthau Plan to de-industrialize Germany in the postwar period. It issued a statement that "any plans to resurrect the economic and political power of Germany" would be dangerous to international security.
Roosevelt later learned that FDR's mistress Lucy Mercer Rutherfurd had been with him when he died,  a discovery made more bitter by learning that her daughter Anna had also been aware of the ongoing relationship between the President and Rutherfurd. After the funeral, Roosevelt temporarily returned to Val-Kill. She lived here until when she moved to East 62nd Street. When that lease expired in , she returned to the Park Sheraton as she waited for the house she purchased with Edna and David Gurewitsch at 55 East 74th Street to be renovated.
Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum opened on April 12, , setting a precedent for future presidential libraries. In December , President Harry S. In a speech on the night of September 28, , Roosevelt spoke in favor of the Declaration, calling it "the international Magna Carta of all men everywhere". Roosevelt attributed the abstention of the Soviet bloc nations to Article 13, which provided the right of citizens to leave their countries. Roosevelt also served as the first United States Representative to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights  and stayed on at that position until , even after stepping down as chair of the Commission in In the late s, Democrats in New York and throughout the country courted Roosevelt for political office.
Roosevelt supported reformers trying to overthrow the Irish machine Tammany Hall , and some Catholics called her anti-Catholic. In July , Roosevelt had a bitter public disagreement with Cardinal Francis Spellman , the Archbishop of New York , over federal funding for parochial schools. In , she was made an honorary member of the historically black organization Alpha Kappa Alpha. She was an early supporter of the Encampment for Citizenship , a non-profit organization that conducts residential summer programs with year-round follow-up for young people of widely diverse backgrounds and nations.
She routinely hosted encampment workshops at her Hyde Park estate, and when the program was attacked as "socialistic" by McCarthyite forces in the early s, she vigorously defended it. Roosevelt grew increasingly disgusted with DeSapio's political conduct through the rest of the s. Their efforts were eventually successful, and DeSapio was forced to relinquish power in Averell Harriman —a close associate of DeSapio—for the Democratic presidential nomination. She supported Adlai Stevenson for president in and , and urged his renomination in Eisenhower became President.
She addressed the Democratic National Convention in and Although she had reservations about John F. Kennedy for his failure to condemn McCarthyism , she supported him for president against Richard Nixon. Kennedy later reappointed her to the United Nations, where she served again from to , and to the National Advisory Committee of the Peace Corps. By the s, Roosevelt's international role as spokesperson for women led her to stop publicly criticizing the Equal Rights Amendment ERA , although she never supported it.
In the early s, she announced that, due to unionization, she believed the ERA was no longer a threat to women as it once may have been and told supporters that they could have the amendment if they wanted it. Kennedy appointed Roosevelt to chair the commission, with Peterson as director. This was Roosevelt's last public position. It concluded that female equality was best achieved by recognition of gender differences and needs, and not by an Equal Rights Amendment. Throughout the s, Roosevelt embarked on countless national and international speaking engagements.
She continued to pen her newspaper column and made appearances on television and radio broadcasts.
She averaged one hundred fifty lectures a year throughout the s, many devoted to her activism on behalf of the United Nations. In April , Roosevelt was diagnosed with aplastic anemia soon after being struck by a car in New York City. In , she was given steroids, which activated a dormant case of tuberculosis in her bone marrow ,  and she died of resulting cardiac failure at her Manhattan home at 55 East 74th Street on the Upper East Side  on November 7, , at the age of President John F.
Kennedy ordered all United States flags lowered to half-staff throughout the world on November 8 in tribute to Roosevelt. Among other prominent attendees, President Kennedy, Vice President Lyndon Johnson and former presidents Truman and Eisenhower honored Roosevelt at funeral services in Hyde Park on November 10, , where she was interred next to her husband in the Rose Garden at " Springwood ", the Roosevelt family home.
At the services, Adlai Stevenson said: "What other single human being has touched and transformed the existence of so many?

In , the White House Historical Association purchased Douglas Chandor's portrait of Eleanor Roosevelt; the portrait had been commissioned by the Roosevelt family in The painting was presented at a White House reception on February 4, , that was hosted by Lady Bird Johnson and attended by more than invited guests.

He was greatly excited. He paced up and down the room, two or three times, in a nervous manner; then, approaching Floriani, said:. You have seen nothing, and yet you contradict all that we have seen and all that we know. If I am mistaken, you can easily prove it.
The count muttered a few more words; then suddenly rushed to the door and passed out. Not a word was uttered in his absence; and this profound silence gave the situation an air of almost tragic importance. Finally, the count returned. He was pale and nervous. He said to his friends, in a trembling voice:. I should never have thought I admit that you are right so far, but now The thief, knowing that the countess was going to wear the necklace that evening, had prepared his gangway or bridge during you absence.
He watched you through the window and saw you hide the necklace. Afterward, he cut the glass and pulled the ring. It is improbable that the child could have brought it in from outside the house and carried it away again without being observed. He must have used something close at hand.
In the little room used by Henriette as a kitchen, were there not some shelves against the wall on which she placed her pans and dishes? For, if they are nor, we could be justified in presuming that the child removed them, fastened them together, and thus formed his bridge. Perhaps, also, since there was a stove, we might find the bent poker that he used to open the transom.
Without saying a word, the count left the room; and, this time, those present did not feel the nervous anxiety they had experienced the first time. They were confident that Floriani was right, and no one was surprised when the count returned and declared:. Henriette is the guilty party. He had been out. Are they not evidence of her complicity? And then, was she not closely watched? But the child, being free, could easily go to a neighboring city, negotiate with some dealer and sell him one diamond or two diamonds, as he might wish, upon condition that the money should be sent from Paris, and that proceeding could be repeated from year to year.
An indescribable anxiety oppressed the Dreux-Soubise and their guests. There was a touch of irony, that seemed rather hostile than sympathetic. But the count affected to laugh, as he said:.

I simply describe the events as they must have occurred. Her illness overcomes her. She dies. Years roll on. The child becomes a man; and then--and now I will give my imagination a free rein--let us suppose that the man feels a desire to return to the home of his childhood, that he does so, and that he meets there certain people who suspect and accuse his mother His words seemed to echo for a few seconds in the ensuing silence, and one could read upon the faces of the Count and Countess de Dreux a bewildered effort to comprehend his meaning and, at the same time, the fear and anguish of such a comprehension.
The count spoke at last, and said:. The chevalier Floriani, whom you met at Palermo, and whom you have been gracious enough to invite to your house on several occasions. It is simply a pastime, so far as I am concerned. He spoke with suppressed emotion, rose partially and inclined toward the countess. His attitude and words proclaimed it.
Besides, was it not his obvious intention and desire to be recognized as such? The count hesitated. What action would he take against the audacious guest? Provoke a scandal? Unmask the man who had once robbed him? But that was a long time ago! And who would believe that absurd story about the guilty child? No; better far to accept the situation, and pretend not to comprehend the true meaning of it. So the count, turning to Floriani, exclaimed:. But what do you think has become of this young man, this model son?
I hope he has not abandoned the career in which he made such a brilliant debut. We must admit that it was sufficient to turn the head of a boy at that age. It was all so easy. He had simply to desire the thing, and reach out his hand to get it. His companions received a shock.
What mystery surrounded the life of the so-called Floriani? How wonderful must have been the life of that adventurer, a thief at six years of age, and who, to-day, in search of excitement or, at most, to gratify a feeling of resentment, had come to brave his victim in her own house, audaciously, foolishly, and yet with all the grace and delicacy of a courteous guest!
Madame, you are afraid of me! Did I pursue my role of parlor- magician a step too far? The legend of that dutiful son interested me very much, and I am pleased to know that my necklace had such a brilliant destiny. But do you not think that the son of that woman, that Henriette, was the victim of hereditary influence in the choice of his vocation?
