On Friday's "Jeopardy" ... A plaque at her bronze statue in Manhattan calls her a "Delegate to the United Nations" & "The First Lady of the World".
Who is Eleanor Roosevelt? is the answer (or question in this case).
The statue is the work of Penelope Jencks, Edwin's mother.
For us map/geography geeks, the statue's location is at the extreme southeastern corner of Riverside Park which is along the western edge of Manhattan. On Google Maps the Streetview gives a fairly decent look at the setting of the statue.

Well, if you make it to Tanglewood, there are a couple of pieces, Amherst College has one, there is also a monument on Comm. Ave in Boston, and others scattered about.
She's got some other stuff in the works now, too.
Here's the tiny URL to the book on the Eleanor piece: http://tinyurl.com/zj2b6jz

And now that she's turned 80, she's trying to figure what's going to happen to her huge stash of sculpture that remains unsold, so pieces are available!
