Comments: This book was published in 1936 by the Democratic National Committee to raise funds for the party. It was sold for $250, which marked the first time a sitting President had actively helped raise funds for a political party. It created a minor scandal at the time, with Republicans attempting to exploit it to their political advantage during the 1936 election.
