Anna Eleanor Roosevelt, the daughter of Elliott and Anna (Hall) Roosevelt, was born in New York. Frankling D. Roosevelt was her fifth cousin. They married in 1905, while he was studying law at Columbia University. Mrs. Roosevelt was the author of several books, including "If You Ask Me" (1946), "This I Remember" (1949), and "On My Own" (1958). Long after she had left the White House, she was referred to as "the First Lady of the World."
