Theodore, Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt were the most prominent members of one of the most important families in American history. Theodore and Franklin occupied the White House for nineteen of the first forty-five years of the twentieth century, years during which much of the modern world – and the modern state – was created. They shared an unfeigned love for people and politics and a willingness to defy class prejudices to help create a true democracy of equal opportunity.
