Known as the "First Lady of the World," Eleanor Roosevelt's life is best characterized by her kindness, leadership, and determination despite periods of sorrow and tragedy from childhood through adulthood. Her contributions to the American people are endless. She campaigned successfully for Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Governorship of New York in 1928 and also for his U.S. Presidency in 1932, 1936, 1940 and 1944. Even after FDR's death, she continued her political activities as United Nations representative and chairperson of the Commission on Human Rights.
