Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1882–1945), also known by his initials, FDR, was the 32nd President of the United States (1933–1945) and a central figure in world events during the mid-20th century, leading the United States during a time of worldwide economic crisis and world war.  As the only American president elected to more than two terms, he facilitated a durable coalition that realigned American politics for decades.  With the bouncy popular song “Happy Days Are Here Again” as his campaign theme, FDR defeated incumbent Republican Herbert Hoover in November 1932, at the depth of the Great Depression.  FDR’s persistent optimism and activism contributed to a renewal of the national spirit, reflecting his victory over paralytic illness to become the longest serving president in U.S. history.  He worked closely with Winston Churchill and Joseph Stalin in leading the Allies against Germany and Japan in World War II but died just as victory was in sight.  Roosevelt dominated the American political scene not only during the twelve years of his presidency, but for decades afterward. FDR’s New Deal Coalition united labor unions, big city machines, white ethnics, African Americans and rural white Southerners.  Roosevelt’s diplomatic impact also resonated on the world stage long after his death, with the United Nations and Bretton Woods as examples of his administration’s wide-ranging impact.  Roosevelt is consistently rated by scholars as one of the top three US Presidents.
