Summary

A vivid and intimate portrait of the New Deal president by the first woman ever appointed to the U.S. Cabinet. When Francis Perkins first met Franklin D. Roosevelt at a dance in 1910, she was a young social worker and he was an attractive young man making a modest debut in state politics. Over the next thirty-five years, she watched his career unfold, becoming both a close family friend and a trusted political associate whose tenure as secretary of labor spanned his entire administration. FDR and his presidential policies continue to be widely discussed in the classroom and in the media, and The Roosevelt I Knewoffers a unique window onto the man whose courage and pioneering reforms still resonate in the lives of Americans today.
