The Roosevelts

The recently released Ken Burns documentary on Public Television about the Roosevelts - Theodore, Franklin, and Eleanor - will no doubt heighten appreciation for their lives and legacies. Ownership of Roosevelt documents and relics fulfills a desire to bridge the gap between their lives and ours, and helps us to remember their public service and sacrifice.
