        President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 1933-1945 | Ken Burns: The Roosevelts

        View images of Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1882-1945), the 32nd President of the United States and the only president to be elected to four successive terms in office, from 1933-1945. He built a legacy on policies that showed a commitment to helping working Americans. Roosevelt led the country out of the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl with his New Deal policies of “relief, recovery, and reform” that expanded the role of government, brought economic relief to citizens, and regulated industries like the nation’s banks, which had triggered the depression. Roosevelt led the country through the worst years of World War II, but died of a stroke in April 1942, just months before the war ended.
