A Glimpse Of The Past Through The FDR Collection - The Legacy of Franklin Roosevelt is primarily the New Deal. He used the powers of the Chief Executive and also created federal agencies that simply got the job done. He was born in 1882 in Hyde Park, NY, the only son of John and Sara Delano Roosevelt with many opportunities to travel, and most summers spent in Maine. Graduating from Harvard, he married his 5th cousin Eleanor. In 1910, FDR won the NY State Senate seat, and worked for Wilson's campaign. He was rewarded with the post of assistant secretary of the Navy. He ran for VP in 1920 and lost. In 1921 he contracted polio. With determination he refused to accept this fate and fought to the point that he could walk with crutches. After 2 terms as Governor , he campaigned for and won the Presidency while America was in the "Great Depression." He appealed to "the forgotten man" at a time of unemployment, failing businesses, bank failures, and physical and mental depression. He used the phrase "New Deal," and at his inauguration, he said "... the only thing we have to fear is fear itself." What followed was a whirlwind of activity creating an array of federal agencies to ease economic woes, such as CCC, SEC, NRA, WPA, and the Social Security Act. With WWII, he appointed great generals to run the war and, afterwards, measures to rebuild Europe. He died at the Summer White House in Georgia just two weeks before the first meeting of the United Nations. In momentous times we needed a great leader. Just such a man, descended from Dutch immigrants to New Amsterdam, was - FDR.
