Howe, Louis McHenry
(1871-1936)
   The “devoted friend, adviser, and associate” of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Louis Howe was born in Indianapolis, Indiana. He worked as a journalist beginning at age of 17 and joined the staff of the New York Herald in 1906. It was in this role that he met Roosevelt, and in 1912 he became his manager. When Roosevelt became assistant secretary of the navy, Howe joined him as his chief of staff and helped manage patronage appointments. He was Roosevelt’s campaign manager in the vice presidential campaign of 1920 and also advised Eleanor Roosevelt. Howe continued as Roosevelt’s manager through the gubernatorial campaign in 1928 and presidential campaign in 1932. He lived in the White House until 1935 when he was moved to the hospital due to failing health. When he died, he was given a state funeral in the White House.
