About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

His Father's Son

"For a child of privilege, he was certainly highly irregular."

Teddy Roosevelt Jr. was nothing if not his father's son. He fought in World War I as well where he was gassed and wounded as a battalion commander (and also bought boots for all the men of his battalion from his own money). He was one of the founders of the American Legion. He was Assistant Secretary of the Navy (like his father and his distant cousin Franklin) and ran for Governor of New York. He was the appointed Governor of Puerto Rico and Governor General of the Philippines. Along the way he wrote eight books and went on numerous expeditions around the world. (He also won his Medal of Honor almost sixty years before his father - Teddy Roosevelt was awarded the medal for service in Cuba in 2001 through the efforts of Congressman Rick Lazio.) Definitely his father's son.

Another famous Roosevelt

Brigadier General and Medal of Honor earner Teddy Roosevelt Jr. was in the first wave of the landings on D-Day, Utah Beach.

After drifting downbeach from the original landing spots he scouted the new location, looked around and said, "We’ll start the war from right here!"

For a child of privilege, he was certainly highly irregular.

[A month after D-Day, he died of a heart attack. - Dave]

Daddy Teddy

Is that possibly Theodore Roosevelt Jr. with his hand raised?

[Indeed it is. - Dave]

Teddy

I give up.....which one's Teddy?
