1940s / FDR Wheelchair Photo 1941
This is a rarity: a photo of FDR in a wheelchair. The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Library has only three photos of FDR in his wheelchair. Roosevelt had been unable to walk since 1921 when he was afflicted with polio. With the help of a willing and co-operative press, Roosevelt managed to conceal his disability from the public for the rest of his life. This photo was taken at Hyde Park in 1941. FDR's shaggy dog, Fala, is on his lap. The girl is the granddaughter of FDR's friend.
