History and Family at The Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum


    The Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum in Hyde Park, New York is in the midst of their countdown to the public opening of the Roosevelt Library's new permanent museum exhibits on June 30th.

These exhibits will tell the story of the Roosevelt presidency beginning in the depths of the Great Depression and continuing through the New Deal years and World War II with an emphasis on both Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt’s relationship with the American people. Special inter-actives, immersive audio?visual theaters, and rarely seen artifacts will convey the dramatic story of the Roosevelt era as the Roosevelt Library brings a New Deal to a New Generation.

To tell us more, we welcome Professor David Woolner, Marist College History Professor, and Roosevelt Institute Fellow & Hyde Park Resident Historian. Also joining us, "Anne" Roosevelt, chair of the Roosevelt Institute Board and granddaughter of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt.
