Program: "Life of Eleanor Roosevelt" - A portrayal of Anna Eleanor Roosevelt, an American politician, diplomat and activist.  Eleanor Roosevelt was the longest-serving First Lady of the United States from March 1933 to April 1945 during her husband President Franklin D. Roosevelt's four terms in office.  She served as the United States delegate to the United Nations, chaired the UN Commission on Human Rights and oversaw the drafting of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  Mrs. Roosevelt later chaired President Kennedy's Presidential Commission on the Status of Women.  She was the first presidential spouse to hold press conferences, write a daily newspaper column, write a monthly magazine column, host a weekly radio show and speak at a national convention.  She was regarded as one of the most esteemed women in the world and called "the object of almost universal respect" in her New York Times obituary.

Please join us to share the portray of a truly remarkable lady in American  history.  If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Steve Ruscher at steveruscher884@gmail.com or 216-346-5645.  If you are not a member of Bay Village Historical Society, a $5.00 donation is requested when you arrive at the meeting.  Membership is encouraged and the annual fee is only $20.00.
