In Rosalind Wyman's baby book there's a photo of her in a carriage and in the background is a poster for Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The year was 1932. You might say she was infused with politics from the very beginning.
In '32, her mother insisted on putting a Roosevelt sign in the window of the family drugstore in Los Angeles.
"My poor father," Wyman says. "He thought we were going to lose business because back then being a Democrat was like being a communist!"
For decades Wyman, known as Roz, has been deeply involved in California's Democratic Party. In 1953, at the age of 22, she became the youngest person ever elected to the L.A. City Council. She played a key role in getting the Brooklyn Dodgers to move west to Los Angeles.
In 1984, she ran the convention in San Francisco, where Rep. Geraldine Ferraro became the first woman nominated for vice president on a major party ticket. Wyman was instrumental in choosing New York Gov. Mario Cuomo to be the keynote speaker, a speech that launched him onto the national scene.
