The LeBoeuf Pen Company proudly honors Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the 32nd President of the United States, with this stunning Limited Edition fountain pen and rollerball.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt was born in 1882 in Hyde Park, New York. His rise to national prominence began in 1928 when he successfully ran for governor of New York and won reelection in 1930. By the presidential election season of 1932, the Great Depression had worsened and showed no signs of abating. Democrats turned to FDR, a popular and successful two-term governor with a recognizable last name, to challenge President Hoover. Promising a "New Deal" for the American people, FDR was swept into office in a landslide. In his inaugural address, Roosevelt gave hope to dispirited Americans throughout the nation, assuring them that they had "nothing to fear but fear itself."
Faced with the Great Depression and World War II, Franklin D. Roosevelt, guided America through its greatest domestic crisis, with the exception of the Civil War, and its greatest foreign crisis. Roosevelt's combination of confidence, optimism, and political savvy—all of which came together in the experimental economic and social programs of the "New Deal"—helped bring about the beginnings of a national recovery.
In foreign affairs, FDR committed the United States to the defeat of the fascist powers of Germany, Japan, and Italy, and led the nation and its allies to the brink of victory. This triumph dramatically altered America's relationship with the world, guiding the United States to a position of international prominence. By virtue of its newfound political and economic power, as well as its political and moral leadership, the United States would play a leading role in shaping the remainder of the twentieth century.
While preparing to run for a fourth term, Franklin D. Roosevelt died on April 12, 1945. His death stunned the nation. The courage and confidence of FDR helped lead the country through its most difficult economic Hardships and the perils of World War II.
The LeBoeuf Franklin D. Roosevelt Limited Edition was manufactured with an exclusive acrylic material called Empire Blue Smoke Gray Marble. This material was purposefully selected to represent FDR’s New York roots, the starting point of his rise to the Presidency.
Each pen barrel has been carefully turned and high polished with Franklin D. Roosevelt’s famous signature engraved in gold into each barrel. A gold coin with a bust of FDR has been carefully fitted onto the top of each cap.
Each FDR is available as both a fountain pen and rollerball. Each fountain pen features a German 14k gold plated steel nib in both fine and medium point and utilizes a cartridge/convertor filling system. The rollerball uses a standard international refill. Each pen is packaged in a special commemorative box. Each pen model is limited to 125 pcs worldwide.
The LeBoeuf Franklin D. Roosevelt Limited Edition celebrates the life of one the world’s most Iconic figures whose confidence and courage guided the nation through some of its darkest moments.
