Papers of President Theodore Roosevelt Now Online via The Library of Congress

January 28th, 2019
I am a history buff — perhaps even a history addict — and sites like this are dangerous for me. I can go “down the rabbit hole” and not emerge for weeks if I am not careful. (LAUGH) Ok, maybe not that bad, but it can be serious time — not waster — but time sink. With all my historical interest, though, there are still wide gaps in my knowledge. I knew a few basics about “Teddy” but it was only when I watched The Roosevelts by Ken Burns that I developed a deeper understanding of them and how Theodore, Franklin and Eleanor were part of a long continuum of Roosevelt power over the decades.
 
Now that I have a bit more knowledge about the family, I am sure to better understand the primary documents included in this collection from the Library of Congress. When you have good base to build on, the specifics become a great deal clearer.
 
Do you have an interest in Theodore Roosevelt? Do you want to learn about him using his own words, letters and policies? Dig in, but be sure to tie an electronic “rope” around your waist so you can find your way out again! — Douglas
 
 

The largest collection of the papers of President Theodore Roosevelt, documenting his extraordinary career in the White House and as vice president, governor of New York, and as a naturalist, writer and reformer, has been digitized and is now available online from the Library of Congress.

The digitization of the massive collection comes just before the 160th anniversary of Roosevelt’s birthday. The nation’s 26th president was born Oct. 27, 1858, and died nearly 100 years ago on Jan. 6, 1919.

The Roosevelt collection is online at: loc.gov/collections/theodore-roosevelt-papers/about-this-collection/.
