One of America's most beloved First Ladies, Eleanor Roosevelt lost both her parents as a young child. She was cared for by her maternal grandmother, and then sent to attend a private school in England.
Eleanor Roosevelt became America's First Lady in 1933 when her husband, Franklin D. Roosevelt, was elected the 32nd President of the United States. She helped calm America during World War II, and diligently worked for various charitable, social and human rights causes through the rest of her life. Her efforts won her international acclaim and admiration. #OrangeIsForOrphans #FamousOrphans #orphans #FirstLady #EleanorRoosevelt
