The Roosevelt Legacy
The Roosevelt ancestry traces back to the seventeenth century and the Province of Zeeland. This is the reason why the Roosevelt Study Center was established in Zeeland’s capital city, Middelburg.
In addition to its research and conference programs, the RSC has joined hands with the Roosevelt Stichting (Foundation) to support the biennial presentation of the FDR Four Freedoms Awards in Middelburg and with University College Roosevelt in support of its educational programs that are focused on the Roosevelt era. These three organizations jointly contribute to keeping alive the Roosevelt Legacy and have put Middelburg on the map as “Roosevelt City.”
