The third inauguration of Franklin D. Roosevelt as the 32nd President of the United States was held on Monday, January 20, 1941 on the East Portico of the Capitol. The inauguration marked the commencement of the third four-year term of Franklin D. Roosevelt as President and the only four-year term of Henry A. Wallace as Vice President. It was the only time a President of the United States was inaugurated for a third term, before the Twenty-second Amendment to the United States Constitution, which limits a President to two terms, was ratified. This was also possibly the first inauguration to be recorded on color film. The film was made by the National Youth Administration.
At the conclusion of the oath, then-Supreme Court clerk Elmore Leonard, who held the Bible for President Franklin Roosevelt, dropped the book.
