Kiewe, Amos
Argumentation and Advocacy, v36 n2 p88-100 Fall 1999
Discusses how prior to the 1932 presidential campaign, Governor Roosevelt sought to dispel suspicion that he was physically unfit to become President; and though he never hid his disability, he minimized his appearance as a disabled person. Describes how Roosevelt arranged for the publication of a medical examination as proof that he was physically fit. (SC)
