by Robert E. Sherwood
Shortly before his election as President of the United States for the third time in 1940, Roosevelt publicly said of himself, ' I am an old campaigner, and I love a good fight.' It was during this election campaign that the American author and dramatist, Robert E. Sher wood, began the association with Roosevelt which grew into friendship and lasted until the President's death. As one of the team who worked on the drafts of Roosevelt's speeches, Mr. Sherwood had a close view of the President's methods. Tonight he gives some personal impressions of life with the ' old campaigner.'
