Theodore Roosevelt Remembered

 

The two case exhibition offers a peak at the amazing treasures to be found in the Theodore Roosevelt Collection. The exhibition explores Roosevelt's Presidency, military career, personal interests, and a glimpse at his public image. 

Material on display include manuscripts with revisions in Roosevelt's hand discussing the Panama Canal, corporate trust busting, and the first two drafts of his acceptance of the Republican Presidential nomination in 1904. Other manuscripts include corrected pages of Roosevelt's autobiography and a draft of his book Through the Brazilian Wilderness. Also on display are handwritten letters from Sherlock Holmes author Arthur Conan Doyle and industrialist Andrew Carnegie. Letters to Battle Hymn of the Republic scribe Julia Ward Howe, Secretary of the Navy Victor Metcalf, and celebrated Maine Guide William Sewall, including the contract between Roosevelt, Sewall and Wilmot Dow to manage Roosevelt's Elkhorn Ranch in North Dakota, are featured. The exhibition also features a selection of campaign pins, election handkerchiefs and ribbons, political cartoons, photographs, the origin of the "Teddy Bear," and even an advertisement for the cure-all "nerve food" Moxie Cola featuring the President. 

This exhbition is no longer on view.
