Doris Kearns Goodwin, in her joint biography of the Roosevelts, No Ordinary Time: Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt: The Home Front in World War II, published in 1994, finds Eleanor to be a key voice for human values in her husband’s administration, while Alter summarized her role this way: “She brought all of her energy and intelligence to the task of moving the country forward, or at least pointing the way. Franklin often said that they made a good team because, while he concentrated on what could be done, Eleanor looked further ahead to what should be done” (2006: 321).

Ruby Black may have seen Roosevelt as someone who possessed a “compulsion to duty” from childhood and therefore “steeled herself to do what she had to do” (1940: ix–x). But for Hareven, Roosevelt’s search was directed toward Maslow’s self-actualization, whereby she could fully explore her talents and potential (1968: 278). In that process, she was able to achieve “a graceful union between being a woman and a public figure” (Robertson 2001: 57). Taking a divergent path, Lash focused less on Roosevelt’s personality than her personal history – a history that moved Roosevelt from her unhappy early years through the challenges created by her husband’s infidelity and his illness before concluding with her emergence as a political figure of her own making (1971).
