Eleanor Roosevelt’s Journey Playing cards


Earlier today, I wrote about my visit to the FDR Presidential Library. The final portion of the museum focused on Eleanor Roosevelt’s life after her husband’s death. One exhibit included the contents of ER’s wallet when she died. It seems she was a frequent traveler. “Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt, Sr.” was a skipper at the American Airlines Admirals Club. And she had a guest card for Sheraton Hotels, which also extended privileges to Avis Rent-A-Car.
