Social activist, author, lecturer, US representative to the UN, and, of course, First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt was born in New York City in 1884. Her father, Elliott, was younger brother to President Theodore Roosevelt, and her mother, Anna, was a descendent of the prominent Livingston family of New York. Both parents were deceased by Roosevelt’s tenth birthday, when she was sent to live with her maternal grandmother in Tivoli, New York. She was educated by private tutors and then in a private school in England. At eighteen, Roosevelt returned to New York and immersed herself in charitable works and teaching. She married her fifth cousin, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, in 1905 and bore him five children. She was a devoted wife and mother. WWI saw her active with the Red Cross and volunteering in Navy hospitals. After her husband was stricken with polio in 1921, Roosevelt lent even greater support to his health and political aspirations, all the while working with the League of Women Voters and the Women’s Trade Committee. Roosevelt proved to be a tireless First Lady who traveled widely through the US visiting relief projects, witnessing the working and living conditions of her fellow citizens, and reporting her observations to her husband. She immersed herself in aiding minorities, the poor, and the disadvantaged. During WWII, she traveled to England and the South Seas to boost the morale of servicemen and bring good will to the Allies. Her husband’s death in 1945 did not slow Roosevelt. President Truman appointed her to the UN and she was instrumental in drafting the Declaration of Human Rights. She resigned her post in 1953, only to accept Kennedy’s reappointment in 1961. She lectured, wrote, and gave of herself until her death in her New York apartment in 1962.
