  • Eleanor Roosevelt - 1,411 words
    Eleanor Roosevelt The Contributions of Eleanor Roosevelt Anna Eleanor Roosevelt was born in New York City on October 11, 1884. She was one of America's great reforming leaders who had a sustained impact on national policy toward youth, blacks, women, the poor, and the United Nations. As the wife of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, she was one of the most active First Ladies as well as an important public personality in her own right. When Eleanor Roosevelt traveled to New York City a week after her husband's funeral in April 1945, a host of reporters were waiting at the door of her Washington Square apartment. The story is over, she said simply, assuming that her words and opinions would no ...

The second son of James Roosevelt, a lawyer, financier, and railroad executive, Franklin was the only child from his father's second marriage to Sara Delano.

He was an excellent student and enjoyed many sports. In 1921, while at the family's vacation home off the Maine, Roosevelt was stricken with infantile paralysis. In 1924, he resumed his legal caree ...

    Franklin D. Roosevelt Franklin Delano Roosevelt is among the most remembered U.S. Presidents. Serving as President for more than twelve years, he was the only President to be elected four times. Roosevelt led the United States through its worst depression and its worst war. He tried his best to stay optimistic with our country and the decisions he made. In Roosevelt's first inaugural address, he asked for faith in America's future. He told the country, The only thing we have to fear is fear itself (Burns 1970, p. 238). That is the lesson that he taught our country to live by. Franklin was born on January 30, 1882, in Hyde Park, New York. He was the only child of James and Sara Roosevelt. Bor ...

    ... Garner were renominated to represent the Democrats. They were running against Alfred Landon and Frank Knox. The Republicans tried to bring Roosevelt down, saying he failed in keeping his promise to balance the budget. But Roosevelt responded by sharing how he succeeded in ending the Depression and bringing the U.S. back to a prosperous nation. FDR's speech in New York City in 1936 left a very strong message to the world, saying, I should like to have it said of my first administration that in it the forces of selfishness and lust for power met their match. I should like to have it said of my second administration that in it, these forces are mastered (Freedman 1990, p. 194). Again, that ...

    Franklin D. Roosevelt In 1929, President Herbert Hoover declared, with confidence, that, "We in America today is nearer to the final triumph over poverty than ever before in the history of any land."1 The decade of the 1920s was one of unbounded prosperity and optimism. The stock market was up, credit buying was at an all-time high; cars, radio, television and jazz were popular. All this brought major changes to the American way of life. Then, without warning, the stock market crashes. The 29th day of October marked the end of the Jazz Age and the beginning of the Great Depression. Industrial and farm production dropped rapidly and unemployment rose from 4 million to 8 million to 12 million ...

    Franklin Delano Roosevelt Franklin Delano Roosevelt is generally regarded as one of the United States' most effective Presidents. Whether the accolades are entirely justified or Roosevelt's effectiveness was simply a product of the time period in which he served as President will always be debated. However, one thing that no one can deny is that Roosevelt took an atypical route on his way to becoming President. Whether he was fighting an illness or coping with the death of a loved one, Roosevelt always managed to keep himself on track and to persist towards his goals and those of the country. People remember FDR for his actions during the Great Depression and World War II, but those actions ...

At the Democratic National Convention in San Francisco on July 6, 1920, Roosevelt was nominated for Vice President to run with Governor James M. Cox of Ohio, and he immediately began to campaign in Chicago. One month later, he resigned his post as Assistant Secretary of the Navy in order to better concentrate on this position. (Ginna 164) Unfortunately, Roosevelt and Cox lost by a landslide in this election on November 2 to Warren G. Harding and Calvin Coolidge (nscds.pvt.k12.il.us). Roosevelt felt that his time ...

Then Roosevelt agreed to run for governor of New York, against the advice of Eleanor and Louis Howe. Roosevelt won by a narrow margin, and Smith lost to Herbert Hoover. Roosevelt now had succeeded Smith as governor of New York. Roosevelt declared that he was going to mold his own administration by replacing Smith's key associates with his own. Smith had been involved in a series of important reforms, and Roosevelt had the problem of developing his own programs, and making a name for himself. So he began work in the fields of conservation and tax ...

  • Franklin Delano Roosevelt Is One Of Our Countrys Best Known And Most Beloved Presidents He Is Commonly Remembered For Taking - 737 words
    Franklin Delano Roosevelt is one of our country's best known and most beloved presidents. He is commonly remembered for taking a tired, beaten, nation and instilling hope in it. This positive view of Roosevelt is held by Burns, who paints the picture of a man whose goal was to alleviate our nation's economic pains. But, is this view too myopic? Is Roosevelt deserving of such a godly reputation? These questions are posed by Conkin as he points out the discrimination that underlies many New Deal programs, and even suggests that many of Roosevelt's actions were for purely political motives. During the weeks preceding Roosevelt's inauguration the country was engaged in an economic crisis that wa ...

  • Franklin Delano Roosevelt: Moral Order - 1,647 words
    Franklin Delano Roosevelt: Moral Order In Franklin Delano Roosevelt's message to the congress on January 6, 1941, he spoke of many new ideas to deal with the controversial issues that were occurring in the world. In his address, F.D.R. spoke of a new order to deal with the actions that were occurring in other continents of the world. The "moral order" that he proposed to these men and women was his way of dealing with the dictators in foreign countries. The foreign dictators had their "new order" and Roosevelt was coming back with his "moral order" in contrast to these dictators. There were many important differences between these orders, yet to discuss these differences one must understand ...

  • Hoover And Roosevelt Had Very Different Ideas On How The - 1,012 words
    Hoover and Roosevelt had very different ideas on how the Depression should be handled. This was almost entirely a result of two integral differences in their schemas; Hoover was a Republican, and had basically worked his way through life, while Roosevelt was not only a Democrat, he had basically been born with the proverbial silver spoon in his mouth. As one can easily see, in many ways these two are complete opposites; in fact, if one looks at both their upbringing and their political affiliation, it seems that Roosevelt's and Hoover's policies must have been different in a great many ways. Hoover was brought up in a poor family, and worked almost his entire life. When he was eight years ol ...

In 1929 the richest one- percent owned 40 percent of the nation's wealth. More than half of all Americans was living below a minimum subsistence level. Annual per-capita income was $750 and for farm people it was only $273 every year. In 1932 10,000 banks failed since 1929.

    President Franklin Roosevelt The world has known many great leaders, especially in the post-Civil War era. Winston Churchill, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Harry Truman all rank with the most prominent leaders of all time. However, in my opinion President Franklin Roosevelt made the most difference out of anybody in this century. He began a new era in American history by ending the Great Depression that the country had succumbed to in 1929. Without him ending the Depression, who knows where this country could have gone? His social reforms gave most people a new perspective on government. Government was not only expected to protect the people from foreign invaders and affairs, but to protect a ...

One of the relief actions was known as the Emergency Relief Act. This established the Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA) and he pushed an appropriation of $500 million to be spent immediately for quick relief. The Reforestation Act of 1933 killed two birds with one stone. First, it helped stop and repair some of the environmental damage that had occurred as a result of the industrial revolution. More importantly, however, it created the Civilian Conservation Corps, which eventually employed more than 2 1/2 million men at various c ...

    Roosevelt In the ancient world, the only way a person could become famous through out the world was to be some sort of king, master warlord, or a descendent of a holy entity. Monarchies, that last lasted long enough, kept the memories of their former leaders alive, conquered peoples never forgot the names of their conquerors, and religions have a knack for constantly worshiping the same divine prophets. Some remain of the ancient celebrities are still famous to this day, many of them now shrouded in the mists of time and have become slightly warped by literature and business. For example, the charitable St. Nicholas, warped by language translations and commercialism, is now a large gift givi ...

  • Roosevelt And Hoover - 1,142 words
    Roosevelt and Hoover President Franklin D. Roosevelt is commonly thought of as a liberal and President Herbert C. Hoover as a conservative. The validity of these accusations, however, is uncertain. Before classifying each president in the categories of "liberal" and "conservative," it must first be understood what is meant by each term. During the time of the Great Depression, a liberal was usually associated with "political equality, free speech, free assembly, free press, and equality of opportunity." It was directly derived from the word "liberty" which meant freedom. Today, the definition changes drastically. A liberal is someone who thinks government can solve problems, and someone who ...
