What's On Your Bookshelf, Roosevelt?

We recently came across a charming, small book in our collection titled Dr. Johnson's Doorknob and Other Significant Parts of Great Men's Houses by Liz Workman. We were certainly not disappointed when we saw that the table of contents included "Great Men's Books"! Readers get a peek at the bookshelves of greats such as Thomas Cole, Washington Irving, Sir Winston Churchill, and Thomas Jefferson. The close-up of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's books, in particular, caught our eye. We could literally browse a snippet of his reading selections. Of course we had to share!

  • The Key by Patricia Wentworth 
  • There Shall Be No Night by Robert E. Sherwood 
  • The Workers at War by Frank Julian Warne
  • American Planning and Civic Annual 
  • New Frontiers of the Mind: The Story of the Duke Experiments by J.B. Rhine
  • The Bundle of Life by Jane Revere Burke
  • New Year's Day by Edith Wharton
  • The Old Maid by Edith Wharton
  • The Spark by Edith Wharton
  • Response by Mary Pownall Bromet

So, what's on your bookshelf? Need suggestions? Contact us or stop by our building to browse our shelves!

Workman, Liz. Dr. Johnson's Doorknob and Other Significant Parts of Great Men's Houses. Rizzoli International Publications, Inc. NY 2007. Print
