President Franklin D. Roosevelt died of a cerebral hemorrhage at the retreat he called his “Little White House.” Between 1921, when first struck by polio, and his death, Roosevelt made forty trips to the healing mineral springs. He arrived for the last time on March 30, 1945, exhausted from the Yalta summit and worried about whether Stalin would keep his promise of free elections in postwar Eastern Europe. On the morning of his death, Roosevelt read news accounts of the war and spent time chatting with two of his cousins. Later that day, while sitting for a portrait, he suddenly complained of a “terrific headache” and lost consciousness. He died at 4:55 P.M. Eastern War Time. Vice President Harry S. Truman was sworn in as president shortly thereafter.
