Last Picture

I was most interested in the photograph of FDR in the July/August issue of American Heritage. Of course, we, like everyone else, had never seen this item before. It is most arresting evidence of the ravages of time and illness on the man. We have a number of photographs taken about two weeks previous to this one that show the same—but not as clearly and dramatically as the Robbins photograph does.

We are currently completing a general revision of our museum gallery devoted to President Roosevelt’s life, and we look forward to displaying a copy of the Robbins photograph.

We hope you enjoy our work.
