Despite suffering from a severe case of polio, Franklin Delano Roosevelt became one of the most respected presidents in the history of the United States.
 
Taking office for the first time in 1933, President Roosevelt faced the responsibility of rebuilding a nation in the throes of the worst economic depression in its history. The stock market had crashed several years earlier, and by this time, approximately one quarter of Americans were jobless. Fully aware of this situation, Roosevelt worked immediately to calm the nerves of Americans by proclaiming, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”      
     
Soon, Roosevelt enacted a series of recovery acts known as the New Deal. These laws strengthened the economy through business reforms and government programs. The New Deal would make great progress toward rebuilding the economy. But as history shows, war can also spark an economic boost, and on December 7, 1941, the U.S. declared war on Japan.
 
One of Roosevelt’s favorite pastimes was collecting stamps. The president even designed the Little America and Mother’s Day commemorative stamps.
 
Just 83 days after becoming president for the fourth time, Roosevelt died on April 12, 1945, at the age of 63.
