But a new photo making the rounds is catapulting a past politician into the spotlight: Franklin Delano Roosevelt Jr., son of former U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt.

F.D.R. Jr. was a lawyer, politician and businessman from New York who served as a United States Congressman from 1949 to 1955.

A photo of young FDR Jr. was posted to Reddit by user Kornichon on Tuesday, where it has since racked up over 35,000 upvotes.
