Recently Family Weekly asked a number of famous personalities to reach back and try to remember who they idolized most as children. Here riv of these personalities—themselves worthy of imitation-give answers which provide insights not only into the people they name but themselves as well. As told to Charles Merrill Dowden Six Great Americans Recall Eleanor Roosevelt By Dr. Joyce Brothers Dr. Joyce Brothers, America's leading female psychologist, has helped literally millions of people through her television program, by answering questions and solving everyday as well as unusual problems. Her love of humanity is evident in the woman she chose to emulate. I believe the person I admired most throughout my childhood was Eleanor Roosevelt—and my admiration of her has not faded. One of the reasons she impressed me was that she was the first wife of any President who managed to maintain her own identity. She seemed always to be giant steps ahead of her time, working for racial and sexual equality before such words as racist, sexist or Women's Lib had come into being. She dedicated much of her time to humanitarian causes, not because they were in vogue, but because she passionately believed in them. I have often thought of Mrs. Roosevelt, who overcame so many handicaps, at times in my life when obstacles seemed overpowering. In a family accustomed to poise and beauty, she grew up an ugly duckling. She was awkard and painfully shy, but her tremendous compassion and her interest in others made her beautiful in the eyes of many peoples. Because of her sensitivity to others and because of her keen intelligence, she was an internationalist at a time when most people were limited by a narrower patriotism. She saw the hope of the world in the United Nations and spent her life dedicated to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a document which she helped to shape, I think the idealistic youth of today would have loved her as much as I did. She was an innovator, a nonconformist * A'« mill/ Weekly, October ;1, t07l unafraid of the new and the untried. She saw the need for change before many of her social peers were even aware of the problems. She was considered by some Americans to be radical and revolutionary-and in many ways she was. Having felt the prejudice that sometimes confronts a woman in a man's world, she was keenly sensitive to discrimination when it touched the lives of others. I am still impressed with the bigness of her being and how it could skip over the pettiness of the human spirit as if it did not exist. I hope she has influenced my life; for to me, she was not only a woman for all seasons, but she was a woman for all peoples of all colors and creeds around the world. John Wayne By Glen Campbell Glen Campbell, America's most popular country singer, has his roots in the cotton fields of Arkansas. As a boy, he used to save his nickels and dimes to get into the local movie house and see shoot-'em-up Westerns. The man he idolized most was -and still is-the roughest, toughest cowboy of them all. When someone has a hero, he tries to imitate him in every way he can. Sometimes this may prove to be unwise, but as far as I'm concerned, I couldn't have chosen a better man than John Wayne. As a boy, I always thought of John as a strong, persevering man who would do only what was justified, Being such an avid fan of John's, I realized that the entertainment industry also had the highest respect for him and that Hollywood considered him one of its most honored citizens. I guess that is why I wanted to follow in his footsteps. Although I wasn't too sure in what direction I was headed, I always hoped that on the way I would gain the recognition and respect that John had. I had the honor of starring in the movie "True Grit," with John, and he was everything I had hoped he would be. I couldn't really believe that we were sitting next to each other on horseback. Believe me, it was the biggest thrill of my life! Abraham Lincoln By John V, Lindsay John V. Lindsay has what is universally considered to be one of the toughest jobs in the world as Mayor of New York City. Having recently switched rulitical parties, he has been singled out as a possible candidate for the Presidency. Childhood heroes lead a precarious life. As children, we are attracted to anyone who seems dramatic or exciting. But as we grow older, and hopefully, wiser, pur vision clears, and we begin to make more rational judgments. The life span of many a herb ranges from the time we hear his myth until the time we learn the truth. There are, however, those figures who survive the ordeal of inquiry and skepticism. I can think of at least two who made this perilous journey from myth to reality and .emerged, at least for me, genuine heroes. The first is Abraham Lincoln. Like all American children, I was taught the Lincolnian legend, and I bought it all. But later, I learned more about Lincoln from the works of impartial and even critical historians. As I grew older, Abraham Lincoln changed. But he was still a giant. As a child, I was drawn to the man who had, out of his own goodness, elevated each American to a place of equal dignity with every other American. As an adult, I realized that Lincoln's motives for emancipation were mixed. That realization damaged the myth of Lincoln as knight-splendid but revealed
