Eleanor Roosevelt Institute for Cancer Research

 Organization

The Eleanor Roosevelt Institute was est. 1959 as part of the American Medical Center, Lakewood, Colo. Ground breaking ceremony held Nov. 16, 1959, but construction was never completed. In 1961, as a project of the Eleanor Roosevelt Cancer Foundation, Inc., it became part of the the University of Colorado Medical Center (renamed the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in 1979). The Foundation also established two other research centers (no longer in existence) at the University of Utah Medical Shcool, and the Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia, Pa. The Foundation and the Denver Institute later merged. In 2003 the Institute became part of the University of Denver, under a shortened name, the Eleanor Roosevelt Institute (ERI). Do not confuse with the Eleanor Roosevelt Institute (presumably of Hyde Park, N.Y.) founded 1972 as a successor to the Eleanor Roosevelt Memorial Foundation, which initiated and cosponsored projects to celebrate and perpetuate the values of Eleanor Roosevelt, esp. in fields of peace, youth, and social policy, and which merged with the FDR Four Freedoms Foundation to form the Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Institute in 1979.
