Photographer wants Roosevelt picture on $10 bill

Posted on July 15, 2015

This photo from the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library of former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt was taken in October 1959 at a stop in Livingston, N.J. by photographer Charlotte Kapp.

Charlotte Kapp has four letters on Eleanor Roosevelt’s stationary and the original, autographed photo she shot of the former first lady in 1959. Now the portrait photographer who lives in Boca Raton wants to see that photo on the $10 bill. “I could never in my wildest dreams have thought this would happen to me,” she wrote. “I was on the last children’s transport from Danzig, Germany [to England] in May, 1939,” narrowly escaping Hitler’s Holocaust.
