Journalist who became a confidant, and perhaps more, to First Lady
She was covering the soon-to-be First Lady for the Associated Press, and got to know her on a personal level during a long train ride.
In over 3,000 letters were passed between Eleanor and her beloved Hick. The two women may have struck up, as some historians have argued, a lesbian relationship.
She was born in East Troy, Wisconsin as the daughter of Anna Adelsa, a dressmaker, and Addison Hickok, a buttermaker.
