Photo of the Week
Young Love at Hyde Park: FDR and Eleanor Roosevelt
The producers at BIO.com review hundreds of photos of famous figures each week, from award-winning actors and popular singers, to headliners and scandal makers. While we're digging through these archives, we often come across amazing photos that we're just dying to share. So, without further ado, here's the one image that stands out to us this week:
Future President Franklin D. Roosevelt (age 21) with Eleanor Roosevelt (age 23) at Hyde Park, New York in March 1905.
But December 7th also holds another meaning for FDR's legacy. This year it will be the 71st anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, a day that changed the course of Roosevelt's Presidency and America's involvement in World War II. On that infamous day, Roosevelt told the nation, "No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory."
Diplomat, U.S. First Lady / 1884 - 1962
