Historians have found that Franklin Roosevelt had a phobia of what?

Answer:

Number 13

In one of the most memorable moments of his political career, Franklin D. Roosevelt said in his first inaugural address “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself”. However, the man who led America through the Great Depression and World War II, had an irrational fear of the number 13. Roosevelt suffered from triskaidekaphobia, which is an intense fear of the number thirteen. Journalist and Roosevelt biographer John Gunther acknowledged that Roosevelt refused to travel on the 13th day of any month, and would never host a dinner with 13 guests.
