The Roosevelts are one of the most storied families in American public life, and over the years, our Public Programs have explored many branches of their expansive family tree. Enjoy audio recordings of two programs below. The first is an interview with Geoffrey C. Ward, author and the writer of Ken Burns’ documentary series The Roosevelts, about the lives of Theodore, Franklin, and Eleanor. The second is a discussion between Ward and journalist Lesley Stahl about an unsung member of the Roosevelt clan: matriarch Sara Delano Roosevelt.
