Franklin Delano Roosevelt ("FDR") was the 32nd President of the United States of America. He was elected President in November 1932 and assumed office on March 4, 1933. He died in office on April 12, 1945, hence the mock title "President for Life." His name is closely associated with the vast expansion of Federal Government referred to as the New Deal.
