Presented by Jeffrey Urbin

Tuesday, July 14
7:00-8:00 pm

Registration is required. You can reserve a space for Eleanor Roosevelt: Compassion and Betrayal by registering below or email Donald at adult@pawlinglibrary.org. 

Eleanor Roosevelt was born a shy, timid girl in a family of power, position, and wealth. From the outside her life would seem to be charmed, but a closer examination charts a lonely course from one betrayal to another. The compassion that she showered on others, here and around the world, was developed in part by her personal understanding what it feels like to be hurt, left out and neglected. This talk examines the trials and turmoil in the life of one of the greatest and most influential woman in the history of our republic.

About our presenter: Jeffrey Urbin is the Education Specialist and Director of the Pare Lorentz Film Center at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum in Hyde Park, New York where he is responsible for developing all of the Library's education offerings ranging from second grade to college and adult learning programs. In addition, he provides training, programs and presentations for teachers and assists museum educators across the country in developing educational programs for their own museums. He has been a pioneer in developing distance learning programs for the Presidential Library System for which he received a 2014 Presidential Libraries Achievement Award.

He attended college on a Harry S Truman Scholarship and is a recipient of the Eugene Sheridan Award for Excellence in History, Government and Economics, numerous teaching awards and the National Guard and Reserve Seven Seals Award. He holds degrees in Public Administration, Political Science, and has a Certificate of Advanced Study in Latin American and Caribbean Affairs. Mr. Urbin served as a Youth Asset Development Coordinator for the YMCA of Greater New York and taught history and government for public and private colleges in the Hudson Valley for more than ten years before joining the National Archives and Records Administration at the Roosevelt Presidential Library in 2001.
