Description

This article from the Hingham Journal details a visit from First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt to Frances Cooke Macgregor. The article states that Roosevelt and Macgregor are collaborating on a book entitled "This is America." Macgregor is taking photographs for the book and Roosevelt is writing the text. Since an entire section of the book is going to be focusing on Hingham, Roosevelt wished to come and visit the town in order to see all the sites and meet the local residents. The people and places she visited included the local League of Women Voters, Old Ship Church, and the Ammunition Depot.
