Presidential Couple Mug: F.D.R.
- National Archives Store Exclusive
- Two-tone ceramic
- 14 oz.
Exclusive to the National Archives, this two-tone ceramic mug commemorates the marriage and partnership of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Anna Eleanor Roosevelt. Generously proportioned for hot beverages, this mug is part of a presidential collection that pays tribute to our country’s first couples.
As Franklin Roosevelt pursued a career in politics, Eleanor Roosevelt raised five children (a sixth died in infancy), volunteered in civic organizations, and worked for women’s suffrage. After her husband was stricken with polio, Eleanor encouraged him to stay in politics, and together they became the longest-serving President and First Lady of the United States, holding four terms in office.
