The Daily Glean: F.D.R.'s soul mate: excerpt from 'Franklin and Lucy'
American Presidents, Mistress, Delano Roosevelt, Eleanor Roosevelt, U.S. Presidents, President Franklin, Lucy
Lucy Page Mercer Rutherfurd was an American woman best known for her affair with future US President Franklin D. Roosevelt. She took a position as the social secretary of Eleanor Roosevelt, Franklin's wife, in 1914. Mercer and Franklin are believed to have begun an affair in mid-1916, which was discovered by Eleanor in September 1918. Lucy Mercer reportedly was with FDR when he died.
Lucy Page Mercer Rutherford (April 26, 1891 – July 31, 1948) was a mistress and long-time friend of United States President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. She was with Roosevelt on the day he died in 1945.

Lucy Mercer - Once A Social Secretary To Eleanor Roosevelt Is Known For Her Relationship With FDR
When Eleanor discovered FDR's affair with Lucy Mercer, she offered him a divorce; but his mother threatened to cut him off, and his advisor Louis Howe warned that his political life would be ruined. FDR stayed with Eleanor, on conditions he'd never again communicate with Lucy, and never again share a bed with Eleanor. He kept his pledge on the latter. In heartbreak, Eleanor became a more public person, a more impassioned advocate for social reforms.
FDR's mistress, Lucy Mercer Rutherferd, who had also been Eleanor's social secretary. Eleanor discovered this relationship in 1918 and ultimately agreed to an arrangement in which she and FDR would stay married but would live apart, and FDR would no longer see Mrs. Rutherferd. The second part of that bargain didn’t last very long, and FDR continued to see Mrs. Rutherferd literally until the day he died. Lucy was present when he suffered the cerebral hemorrhage that caused his death.

Iukhimov's watercolor illustrations have graced Russian-language editions of Lord of the Rings, and we're honestly jealous that we didn't grow up with these faux-Medieval interpretations of Tolkien's epic. They evoke the legendary feel of Middle Earth, but also add a sense of whimsy.
