Elliott Roosevelt

Roosevelt receiving the Distinguished Flying Cross in Algiers Elliott Roosevelt (September 23, 1910 – October 27, 1990) was an American aviation official and wartime officer in the United States Army Air Forces, reaching the rank of Brigadier General. He was a son of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt.

As a reconnaissance commander, Roosevelt pioneered new techniques in night photography and meteorological data-gathering, but his claims to a distinguished record on combat missions have been largely discounted.

After the war ended, he faced an investigation by the United States Congress, on charges of corruption, including accusations that he had recommended the purchase of the experimental Hughes XF-11 reconnaissance aircraft ahead of a Lockheed model that was believed to be superior. Ultimately, he was found blameless. Roosevelt published a book about his attendance at several major Allied war conferences, and a controversial exposé of his parents’ private life. He also wrote 22 mystery novels. His career also embraced broadcasting, ranching, politics and business. Provided by Wikipedia
