Viewing Record 67 of 102 artist: Shay, Arthur


In racially turbulent 1961 Eleanor Roosevelt showed up in Deerfield to help the cause of African-Americans buying two $46,000 homes in a development spawned by an associate of Adlai Stevenson’s law firm. Here, Mrs. FDR visited our fellow activists, the Berliants, and Florence- peeping through at the right, was on the greeting line, as was our 15 year old daughter, Jane. Mrs. Roosevelt’s visit was a great booster for our cause.
