1952 - At the age of 32 years old, Eleanor was alive when on July 2, Dr. Jonas E. Salk tested the first dead-virus polio vaccine on 43 children.

1956 - Eleanor was 36 years old when on May 20th, the U.S. tested the first hydrogen bomb dropped from a plane over Bikini Atoll. Previously, hydrogen bombs had only been tested on the ground. The Atomic Age moved forward.

1961 - She was 41 years old when on April 17th, about 1,000 CIA trained Cuban exiles invaded Cuba with the intention of igniting a rebellion and overthrowing Castro. They were defeated within three days.
