Integrity

ELEANOR ROOSEVELT, probably the most famous and effective first lady of the twentieth century, was an activist for causes such as the abolition of child labor and the establishment of minimum wage legislation.

Eleanor teamed with her husband, Franklin, to support his political efforts, especially after he was paralyzed by polio in 1921.

When her husband was elected president of the United States, Eleanor brought with her a wealth of experience on social conditions and sensitivity and compassion for the underprivileged. Her dedication to the job as First Lady was unlike anyone before her. Although her political enemies made her a target, her integrity made her unique and respected by people at all levels.

Probably Eleanor's greatest influence was on civil rights and race relations. She confronted her husband and pressured him to sign orders barring discrimination. While traveling in the south, she refused to abide by segregation that required her to sit in the white section of an auditorium, and she publicly resigned from the Daughters of the American Revolution because they barred the famous black singer, Marian Anderson, from their auditorium.

Knowing that many institutions did not offer equal opportunity for women, Eleanor held hundreds of press conferences where she permitted only women journalists. This forced news organizations to hire their first female reporters in order to have access to her press conferences.

Eleanor Roosevelt was recognized for her integrity, patience, and uncompromising morality.

No legacy is so rich as honesty.

William Shakespeare

1564-1616, English Dramatist, Playwright, Poet

There is no right way to do a wrong thing.

If you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything.
