1932: FDR elected president

In 1932, Democratic presidential candidate Franklin D. Roosevelt beat incumbent Republican President Herbert Hoover with the Great Depression looming in the background. The 32nd U.S. president, who would go on to lead the country through World War II, had been paralyzed from the waist down due to an illness thought at the time to be polio. In this photo from the FDR Presidential Library & Museum, the presidential hopeful is pictured campaigning in Warm Springs, Georgia, with Anna Roosevelt Halsted and Eleanor Roosevelt just two weeks before the election.
