Roosevelt, was born ten months after his brother, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Jr. (1909-1909), died at seven months old. Elliott was Mayor of Miami Beach from 1965-1967. He was married five times: to Elizabeth Browning Donner (1932-1933, divorced), Ruth Googins (1933-1944, divorced), actress Faye Emerson (1944-1950, divorced), Minnewa Bell Ross (1951-1960, divorced) and Patricia Whitehead (1960-1990, his death).

Emerson, whose film credits include The Desert Song (1943), Destination Tokyo (1943), Hollywood Canteen (1944) and A Face in the Crowd, had her greatest success on the small screen, hosting a number of TV programs in the early 1950s. She was so popular that it is rumored that TV's Emmy Awards are named in her honor. Roosevelt was Emerson's second husband. After their divorce, she was married to bandleader Skitch Henderson from 1950-1957. ANNA SOSENKO (1909-2000) was a business manager and producer in an industry dominated by men.
