Remembering the Life and Work of Malvina ("Tommy") Thompson
The niece of Malvina ("Tommy") Thompson and the goddaughter of First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, Eleanor Lund Zartman had an exceptionally rare experience as a child, watching history unfold during the Great Depression and World War II at the White House, and in the late 1940s at Val-Kill. With the official title of secretary and the role of chief of staff, Tommy Thompson (1893-1953) capably and loyally served the first lady before, during, and after Franklin D. Roosevelt's presidency, until her own death at the age of 60. Mrs. Zartman's childhood adventures with her beloved aunt included witnessing the bustling activity in Mrs. Roosevelt's White House, traveling with her aunt and the first lady, and regularly staying at Val-Kill. Zartman will join History Happy Hour to share her story.
