In Roosevelt's Bright Shadow highlights Roosevelt's speech and examines his visit to Kingston. The volume delves deeper into the topic by providing all the subsequent addresses to Canada's Parliament made by U.S. presidents after Roosevelt. Many individuals associated with Queen's University feel abundant pride in their connection to President Roosevelt through his visit to the campus 70 years ago, and the visit 10 years later by the late president's wife, Eleanor Roosevelt. By assessing Roosevelt's speech in its greater context, this book is a testament to those feelings. "That Franklin Roosevelt, a man beloved by Canadians in his lifetime, chose our campus to make such a highly significant address is a matter of pride for all members of the Queen's community." Principal Tom Williams, Queen's University
