|The FDR Suite Foundation's crest was created specifically for us. It's a combination of the Roosevelt arms (the three roses in the upper field) and the Adams House arms in the lower, divided by a brown chevron, to recall FDR's roommate, Lathrop Brown. The motto, derived from Roosevelt's own, translates: He who restores, preserves. For more more on the background of the crest, click here.|
The FDR Suite Foundation Inc., a public 501(c)3 charity, was established in 2008 to preserve and restore the character of Harvard's most historic House, Adams. In addition to funding the restoration of the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Suite in Westmorly and maintaining the Suite's collections, the Foundation co-sponsors the annual FDR Memorial Lecture and Dinner, leads Harvard Alumni Association historic walking tours, and hosts other cultural events to promote awareness of Adams House history. Additionally, the Foundation hosts The New Fireside Chats series of webcasts, which explore the people, culture and history of our times. The Foundation also seeks to establish FDR Memorial Scholarships to benefit needy House residents.
The FDR Suite Foundation is an all volunteer organization, staffed by Adams alumni and by members of the extended Adams community.
