The library received an extraordinary addition to its audiovisual collection this quarter: a photograph of FDR in his wheelchair while on board Vincent Astor's yacht Nourmahal in April 1935.The previously unknown and unpublished photograph first appeared in Robert Cross's book, Sailor in the White House: The Seafaring Life of FDR (Naval Institute Press, 2003).
