Eleanor Roosevelt Visits Arden in the Early 1930s (Photo)



Donald Stephens was one of Eleanor Roosevelt’s many friends. They may have met when Stephens worked for the Resettlement Administration, one of Roosevelt’s favorite New Deal agencies, in Washington, D.C.

Here, Roosevelt is flanked by Donald and Frank Stephens.
