Theodore Roosevelt

Vice President (1901)
Governor of New York (1899 - 1900)
Theodore Roosevelt became President after William McKinley’s assassination. Though Roosevelt is one of the most famous Presidents today, and eventually met great respect, his early political reputation was a bit shaky. Roosevelt was most famous pre-Presidency for his leadership during the Spanish American War, where a rough-and-tumble “cowboy” image of him emerged. Roosevelt is also famous for forming his own political party, the Progressive or “Bull Moose” party, and running against his former ally Howard Taft. Any memorabilia indicative of these images of Roosevelt will see higher prices. Roosevelt’s Presidential campaigns fell during the height of the celluloid button era, so there are a large variety of appealing pinbacks for collectors to choose from. Roosevelt enthusiasts should also be able to find written materials, as Roosevelt personally wrote his early letters and typed latter letters, only writing when the correspondence or document was brief. He often added handwritten words to typed letters to appear more personal. Additionally, he usually signed his own letters. This makes authenticating Roosevelt written material easier, though a specialist should still be contacted. Theodore Roosevelt Presidential China Signature
