More About this Item

Description: ROOSEVELT, THEODORE. (1858-1919). Twenty-sixth president of the United States. SP. (“Theodore Roosevelt”). 1p. Imperial Cabinet. N.p., N.d. (Circa 1900). A magnificent and early imperial cabinet sepia-toned photograph, showing TR standing with one hand tucked into his pants pocket, wearing his characteristic pince-nez and gazing resolutely into the camera. Signed in dark brown ink in the lower left portion of the image. ********** Roosevelt was a larger-than-life figure simultaneously representing reform, conservation and the American spirit. He overcame health problems in his youth to serve in New York politics, and famously led his Rough Rider regiment in the Spanish-American War. After accelerating through the offices of governor, assistant secretary of the navy and vice president, he became, in 1901, upon President McKinley’s assassination, the youngest man ever to serve as president of the United States. During his two terms, he opposed big labor while expanding the power of the presidency, developing consumer protection laws, creating national forests and winning the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to resolve the Russo-Japanese War. And, as if that was not enough, President Clinton awarded him, posthumously, the Medal of Honor. ********** A very elegant presentation; though unexamined out of the frame, the photograph appears to be in very fine condition.
