ABSTRACT
The article profiles former U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt. As president, Roosevelt faced two of the nation's most serious challenges, the Great Depression and World War II. His legacy in handling both remains a subject of considerable debate. But that legacy also insures Roosevelt will not easily be forgotten. Critics complained about Roosevelt's policies, Mrs. Roosevelt's travels and the marriages and careers of the five Roosevelt children. But the country remained satisfied with his policies in 1944, or at least unconvinced that another leader could better handle the war, and Roosevelt was returned for a fourth term.
