    Eleanor Roosevelt

    Eleanor Roosevelt brought a breezy informality and bustle of activity to the White House. At the inaugural buffet, the President waited his turn to be served like anyone else, and Mrs. Roosevelt helped with the serving. She also horrified chief usher “Ike” Hoover by insisting immediately on operating the elevator herself. “That just isn’t done, Mrs. Roosevelt,” he protested. “It is now,” she said, slipping in alone and closing the door. During Mrs. Roosevelt’s first day at the White House, a woman reporter telephoned and asked for Mrs. Roosevelt’s secretary Malvina Thompson. “Miss Thompson isn’t in,” a voice replied. “May I help?” “Who is this?” asked the reporter. “Mrs. Roosevelt,” was the reply.
