At Home with the Roosevelts Ep. 11 – Museum Collection: Eleanor Roosevelt’s Red Cross Uniform
Eleanor Roosevelt was often on the move during World War II conducting inspection tours at home and overseas trips to demonstrate American support for other Allied nations. Her most ambitious and dangerous foreign trip was a 25,000 mile tour of the South Pacific in 1943 as a representative of the American Red Cross. She wore this uniform during that trip. Hosted by FDR Library Supervisory Curator Herman Eberhardt. Directed and produced by Drake Creative.
