Calling all photographers: FDR's Little White House wants your pictures

sokamoto@ledger-enquirer.comJuly 1, 2013 

Because President Franklin D. Roosevelt was such a titanic figure in American history, his legacy "touched every part of the world," according to Brian Roslund, president of Friends of Roosevelt's Little White House.

FDR's Little White House is asking for the park's visitors to take photographs that are related to the Roosevelt era.

It can be a structure built during the New Deal or World War II years, parks or anywhere he visited.

When the museum receives the photographs, they will be displayed for public judging. The photographs will be archived and preserved.

So go out and take a picture, print it to an 8"x10" format and mail it FDR's Little White House, 401 Little White House Road, Warm Springs, Ga. 31830.

On the back of your picture, make sure to print your name, address, phone number and description of the photograph.

You can enter any number of photographs, but they will not be returned.

There are two categories. You can take a photo at Roosevelt's Little White House State Historic Site. Or you can go to Roosevelt-related sites in the United States or around the world.

The deadline is Sept. 30.

The People's Choice judging will be Oct. 1-31.
