Bob Hope often poked fun at the frequency of First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt’s (1884–1962) travels. In later life, Hope recalled a White House dinner during which he asked President Roosevelt if he would apologize to his wife for the “ridiculous traveling jokes” he told: “He looked at me very seriously and then said quietly, ‘I certainly will, Mr. Hope . . . In my next letter.’ Then he burst into laughter.” Here, Hope greets Mrs. Roosevelt at a Washington event.
