and du Pont family Roosevelt is the first child born to Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Jr. and his first wife, Ethel du Pont. He was born during his paternal grandfather's second term as president and was his eighth grandchild to be born. After his birth, his father said, "'Battling' Frank III is a beautiful baby."[1] He has a younger brother, Christopher du Pont Roosevelt, born 1941, also from his parents' marriage. From his father's later marriages, of which there were five in total, he has two younger half-sisters, Nancy Suzanne Roosevelt (born 1952) and Laura Delano Roosevelt (born 1959), and a younger half-brother, John Alexander Roosevelt (born 1977). He also has a younger half-brother, Benjamin S. Warren III (born 1954), from his mother's later marriage to attorney Benjamin S. Warren, Jr.[2] Education and career[edit] After graduating from St. Mark's School in Southborough, Massachusetts, Frank Roosevelt received his Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Yale University

in 1961, his master's degree from Columbia University

from The New School.[3]

His dissertation was entitled Towards a Marxist Critique of the Cambridge School. His work has primarily focused on combining Marxism and capitalism in an attempt to make modern economic systems more "fair" and less prone to the "winner takes all" scenario. In 1977, he became a professor at Sarah Lawrence College
Sarah Lawrence College
in Yonkers, New York, where he was chair of the social sciences faculty from 1988 to 1990 and from 1991 to 1993.[3] He is now a professor emeritus, and continues to speak out on his grandparents' legacies.[4][5] He has referred to himself as a "radical" or "alternative" economist.[6] Rhona Free, one of his former students who is a professor of economics at Eastern Connecticut State University, was named in 2004 one of four U.S. Professors of the Year by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education. In her acceptance speech, she cited Roosevelt as a significant influence, saying, "The most important teacher I ever had was Frank Roosevelt, an economics professor at Sarah Lawrence. He's much more interested in teaching than in testing and in encouraging than in evaluating. In his classes even an average student, as I was, can learn to think critically, express thoughts carefully, and view the world with an open mind."[7] In 2004, the university awarded him the Lipkin Family Prize for Inspirational Teaching.[7] Politics and family legacy[edit]
