Eleanor Roosevelt's My Day: The Post-War Years

Eleanor Roosevelt, Author, David Emblidge, Editor, David Elmblidge, Editor Pharos Books $19.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-88687-457-5
This second collection of syndicated columns, which kept Eleanor Roosevelt in the public eye after FDR's death and her departure from the White House, covers an eventful period of her life. During the terms of Presidents Truman and Eisenhower, she was a notable activist, particularly in 1945 after her appointment as the only U.S. woman delegate to the first meeting of the United Nations General Assembly in London. Her reflections on that experience and on human rights issues are couched in terms of responsible citizenship and individual conscience. The columns, here edited by freelancer Emblidge, cover a wide range of public issues and personal concerns, from her first encounter with a homeless person to becoming a working widow--all presented in a voice that resonated for countless Americans.
