O, FOR HISTORY: Eleanor, The Bride

Whenever I walked down East 76th Street, just a few blocks from my apartment, I always stopped to read the plaque at No. 6 & No. 8 East 76th Street that commemorated the March 17, 1905 wedding of Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt in the home of her cousin.

Eleanor’s uncle, President Theodore Roosevelt, gave the bride away in place of his older brother, Elliot. Ironically, Elliot was also the groom’s godfather.
