Eleanor Roosevelt’s life was a long and complex process of self-discovery. Growing up as a shy and awkward child, she found her voice and confidence in the politics of the New Deal. Nicknamed “Eleanor Everywhere” by the press, she traveled where her stricken husband could not go. Mrs. Roosevelt changed forever the role of First Lady. Diplomat, social activist and political visionary, she is remembered today as one of the nation’s most beloved public figures.
