Research Scholar Nancy Woloch Publishes "Eleanor Roosevelt: In Her Words"

Nancy Woloch, Research Scholar in History, will publish a new edited volume entitled Eleanor Roosevelt: In Her Words on September 5, 2017 (Black Dog & Leventhal Publishers, Hachette Book Group).

This illustrated, first-of-its kind collection from Eleanor Roosevelt's writing, speeches, and letters speaks directly to the challenges we face today. Acclaimed for her roles in politics and diplomacy, Eleanor Roosevelt was also a prolific author, journalist, lecturer, broadcaster, educator, and public personality. Using selections from her books, columns, articles, press conferences, speeches, radio talks, and correspondence, Eleanor Roosevelt: In Her Words tracks her contributions from the 1920s, when she entered journalism and public life; through the White House Years, when she campaigned for racial justice, the labor movement, and the "forgotten woman"; to the postwar era when she served at the United Nations and shaped the International declaration of Human Rights.
