Eleanor Roosevelt Pictures

A Collection of Pictures of First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt

Anna Eleanor Roosevelt was the First Lady of the United States from 1933 to 1945. Although she at first came to public attention because she was married to U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Eleanor herself became a strong, influential personality during and after Franklin's years in office. After Franklin's death in 1945, Eleanor continued to be an important figure, even becoming one of the first five U.S. delegates to the United Nations.
