About this Exploration:
Eleanor was the nickname of the basic sanitation that began in the early to mid-1930s.
Franklin D. Roosevelt took office as America’s 32nd president in 1933 when the nation was deep into the Great Depression. Many work projects were organized to help the unemployed, including Public Works Administration or PWA (The PWA should not be confused with its great rival the Works Progress Administration (WPA), though both were part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal).
With the epidemic of typhoid fever in the minds of the people, Eleanor Roosevelt wanted to improve the sanitation of the farmers and rural communities. These outhouses still bear her name.
