This three-quarter portrait of the 26th President of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, was taken at his home, Sagamore Hill, on Saturday, May 27, 1916, when three thousand Americans came to convince him to campaign for President again.

Roosevelt came from a wealthy family, though he had asthma which he countered with vigorous exercise and a deep interest in the natural world. After the death of his wife in 1884, Roosevelt went to work as a rancher, and what he learned would later enable him to become President of the United States.

Colorizer Deborah Humphries says of working on this portrait: "There really is no other man like him. Not with the style and strength of personality such as Teddy Roosevelt. He's a pleasure to work on. The print archival print was a mess. It is torn, stained, and scratched."
