PD: Reproduction of 1947 presidential portrait by artist Frank O. Salisbury of the 32nd president of the United States Franklin D. Roosevelt: b. 1882. d. 1945. A major figure in world events during the mid - 20th century, leading the country in a world wide economic depression, and total war with Nazi Germany, Japan, and Italy. A liberal democrat who was elected president and instrumental in many social measures such as social security in his " new deal " legislation. A time of desperate measures, and desperate government action in the wake of Pearl Harbor bombing, american citizens of Japanese ancestry were re-located from the west coast to relocation centers away from the coast in Executive order # 9066 as the fear of Japanese invasion of the California coast loomed. This re-location order in the wake of looming war will always remain a blot on the government of the United States. In the final analysis he will be remembered as one of the great presidents of the United States.
