"For mental floss. I heart radio. This is history versus a podcast. About how your favorite historical figures faced off against the greatest foes? I'm your host Aaron McCarthy. And for this round repeating. Tr against his daughter. Alice a constant source of stress for the twenty six president Roosevelt. One said I can be president of the United States or I can attend to Alice. So how did? Tr Juggle running the country with raising his oldest daughter. We're about to find out. The Roosevelt family had all the elements of a happy conventional household theater. Roosevelt married his second. Wife and Childhood. Sweetheart Edith Kermit Caro- in eighteen eighty six together. They had five children Theodore the third or Ted Junior kermit ethel archibald and Quinton growing up. The boys enjoy boxing with their father. While Ethel stuck to more ladylike activities like needlework and then there was alice her brothers with teaser that they have the same mom as her and that she got it very cruel and it was something shoes really sensitive about. That's only fries from stuff. You missed in history class. And she explains Alice's relationship with Edith wasn't any smoother the fall into in some ways the classic kind of step mother stepdaughter. Rules that we have come to expect from Disney films and a lot of that was sort of this for ever cloud that hung over the household of his first wife Alice before starting his life with Edith Teddy Roosevelt had married Alice Hathaway Lee in eighteen. Eighty the daughter of a banker. Alice senior was known in Massachusetts Social Circles for her charm and beauty. A meeting her Tiara wrote as long as I live. I shall never forget how sweetly she looked and how she greeted me. Alice became pregnant in eighteen. Eighty three and gave birth to a healthy baby girl named Alice. Lee Roosevelt on February twelfth. Eighteen eighty four with a lovely Boston socialite for a mother and an ambitious New York politician for a father baby. Alice should have had it all and then the unthinkable happened shortly after delivery Alice. Senior Fellow Teddy. Who had been in Albany working on a law? The day of his daughters birth rushed home to New York City after receiving news of her condition. He held her in his arms as she passed in and out of consciousness she had what was then known as Bright's Disease Alice. Hathaway Roosevelt died on February fourteenth at the age of twenty two. It was the second loss. Tr had sustained that day just hours earlier. His mother meteoroid volt had come to typhoid fever. Barely two days. Old Alice's life was already embroiled in tragedy. If you put yourself in that position of losing apparent that you're very close to you and your spouse's Day it's pretty easy to understand. It completely. Changed his relationship with the world. Not just his new child but they were setting up this beautiful life that they have planned out and now everywhere he went was a memory of his life that had passed and that was a big part of why he kind of decided that he was gonNA leave and go out with just a few months after his daughter was born. Tr left her with his sister. Anna went by the nicknames baby and by and retreated to the Dakota Badlands. He rarely inquired about Allison. The letters emailed home. He returned briefly to New York for business when she was about five months old and even in person he had trouble acknowledging her he called her baby Lee because he couldn't bear to say her mother's name but though it wasn't always apparent alice was loved. One of the first hintze fatherly affection from tr comes from a letter dated September. Eighteen Eighty. Four he wrote. I hope Mousy kipnes will be very cunning. I shall dearly love her. But the most stable source of love and baby alice's life was amp. Amy That was one of those relationships ended up really really setting the tone of Alice's life forever because they became what she referred to as big influences. The child it's crazy to hear about how much influence baby had on Alice but also on tr and how often she would just like drop everything to help make political connections or do whatever it was that he needed done. She was really his most trusted confidante for pretty much the rest of his life like he would go to her with personal decisions political decisions with a you know any kind of thing that he was ruminating and get his sister's opinion. Which kind of interesting like I feel like there are not that many instances? It's history of men with as much power as him who like the first quarter of business. When they're faced with the decision is let me call my sister. Babies influence on teddy lasted throughout his career. As president he often referred to his sister's home as the other White House and according to their niece. Eleanor Roosevelt. He made few serious political decisions without talking with her first allies later remarked. Antibi- had been a man. She would have been president but she wasn't the only woman who mattered to. Tr ALMOST TWO YEARS AFTER ALICE. Senior died Edith Kermit. Caro- entered his life or reentered. It rather the couple likely had a teenage romance and edith ran in the same social circles. Theodore Edith was a natural choice for his next wife. Her potential stepmother was less of a concern for him. Alice had lived with me for the first three years of her life and tear. Assumed things would stay that way. Even after he remarried but edith other plans insistent. That child will become my child. She will come with us. And we will be one big family together which sounds really lovely but it was fraught with tension according to historian Edmund Morris tr edith baby came up with a plan to live together for a time at Sagamore Hill. The Roosevelt's famous Long Island Estate to ease Alice's transition to a new family. That family got even bigger with the birth of Theodore Junior in eighteen. Eighty seven edith. Wanted to be a good parent to her stepdaughter but raising headstrong child like. Alice wasn't always easy when Alice was a teenager. Edith along with teddy proposed sending her to a conservative boarding school in New York City according to historians Pierre. Collier and David Horowitz. Alice protested saying if you send me I will humiliate you. I will do something that will shame I tell you I will. When she was older alice often spend time with Jamie and as Kathleen Dalton writes in her book Theodore Roosevelt a strenuous life. She Edith had very different ways of managing. Alice baby was generous rarely hesitating to give her niece. Whatever she wanted while edith believed children needed discipline as Alice grew into a young woman. Her resemblance to her mother became UNMISTAKABLE. Which made parenting her even harder for. Edith Heart. When I read that Edith. Back Mouth Alice to her daughter. Alice was kind of a discussion but it was very pretty but she's really stupid like to child. There was also this problem. Where of course you know Theodore Roosevelt without traveling a lot of the Times. The one person who really love both of these women could not serve as any kind of a her or they were just kind of left to fight it out on their own tier also saw his late wife and his daughter. The distance that existed between them analysis baby along with his refusal to talk about her mother lingered throughout her childhood. She would later say. I think it is true to say that my father didn't want me to be a guilty burden. He obviously felt guilty about it. Otherwise he would have said at least once that I had another parent. The curious thing is that he never seemed to realize that. I was perfectly aware of it and developing resentment. Tears aloofness wasn't the only reason Alliston. See more of her father. He was also hard work pursuing a political career. He served as governor of New York and vice president of the United States while Alice was a teenager then in nineteen o one following William McKinley Cessation Theodore. Roosevelt was sworn in as president. The Roosevelt's we're going to the White House. We'll be right back guys bobby bones host the bobby bones show and that pretty much always sleepy.

It's now seen as anti-drug propaganda and literary hoax but it's been continuously in print since its publishing and was even adapted into with TV movie starring William Shatner. What is this book and Finally Question Number Ten me. The surname of Dober- was originally usually given to English workers who used what specific building material. We'll give you a minute to think about it. We'll be right back with answers. Khalid Sir Experience Cernan down great great do it here. We go question one. Let's get this one out of the way maybe our Alice Cooper pick that name subconsciously because he had some problems with alcohol later in life. A Cooper was someone who made made what barrels barrels cooper is a person trained to make wooden casks barrels that buckets tubs troughs and other staved containers from timber that was is usually heated or steam to make a pliable journeyman cooper is also traditionally make wooden implements such as rakes wooden blade shovels.

What Goldberg and Danny Clever it was made into a musical in two thousand five with a revival in Twenty fifteen starring the incomparable Cynthia Areso Areso as Sally and she performed a song on some late night show and I was again. I don't know what it is about musical songs. I think it like really really tickles. The the thirteen year old inside of me and I just cried and cried. Her voice is so beautiful anyway questionable three a little bird told me that Kevin Spacey's birth name was Kevin Fowler other that I can't think of another famous fowler. What is the historical occupation associated with Fowler like a like a bird keeper like I'll? I'll take it a bird. Keep its bird catching or bird hunting yeah. It's an English and or Scots surname its origin in the old English Fu Galare an and occupational name for a bird catcher hunter of wild birds old English fugel or Fogle means bird. It's kind of like a falconer to would be kind of the same yeah question number four Alice Walton is the heir to the Walmart Fortune and the second richest woman in the world with an estimated net worth forty five billion in two thousand. She courted controversy. I see by purchasing numerous important works of American art furnish. Her Passion project a cutting edge art museum in Bentonville Arkansas with a sparkling reputation. What is the name of this museum crystal. I still bridges crystal bridges so controversial. Is that how they say it in Britain so controversial so in in May two thousand and five the museum. Do you know about this. Tell me Okay I will admit to those and five museum purchased coveted Asher B Durand landscape entitled Kindred Spirits From The New York our public library so kindred spirits. It's shows Asher B Durand in another man and they're like they're being very chummy. At the edge of a beautiful cliff in there's like a moon soon and it's looking out over the Hudson Valley and it is a it is a quintessential piece of Hudson Valley Artwork. It depicts New York early New York. It's Hudson River school artists. The most famous Hudson rivers one of the most famous Hudson River school artists it was given to the New York Public Library by like a descendant descendant of Asher B Durand his daughter or something like that it's been with with near Public Library for years and years and years so they bought it. Okay Crystal Bridge Alice Walton specifically bought it for Crystal Bridges for thirty five million dollars in a blind auction and the reason why was because the New York Public Library was tearing very close to financial ruin so the thing that Alice Walton has been criticized of doing in the museum world is offering so much money money like because she has so much money she can offer any amount of money more than any museum could ever dream Um and because so many museums are having especially around that time two thousand eight early two thousands they were having such a hard time with endowments and money in that kind of thing that she was making a lot of museums offers they couldn't refuse views so so crystal bridges currently has an over two hundred million dollar endowment and can basically buy whatever burnt wants the gross clinic which is a a Philadelphia icon so is a good example of her holding local art hostage and two thousand six the museum partnered partnered with the National Gallery of Art Meaning Crystal Bridges partnered with the National Gallery of art in an attempt to purchase Thomas Eakins says the Gross Clinic from Thomas Jefferson University because they owned it outright so under the terms of the agreement the two museums agreed to pay a record sixty eight million dollars but the university gave Philadelphia forty five days to match the offer. We will buy this for sixty eight million dollars unless you can scrape up enough money and match the offer so it's really weird yeah. The Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts agreed to collectively match the offer and the painting remained in Philadelphia and the but the purchase forced both museums to sell some of their best eakins pieces which which is like ironic including cowboy singing the cello player and in April two thousand seven crystal bridges acquired another Eakins belonging Thomas Jefferson University entitled Portrait of Professor Benjamin h Rand for an estimated twenty million dollars so she has probably a good example from every state in the union how because she can just buy it. The other thing is is that Bentonville Arkansas is kind of economically depressed area. It's a state of the Art Museum Museum. It's the first art museum to be established in nineteen seventy four okay and she she also. There's no you don't have to pay to get in. It's free. It's free for everybody so on one hand. She's making very high end art accessible to a lot of people who wouldn't normally get to see it but at the same time she's basically like she's Carmen Sandiego going yeah. She's Carmen Sandiego doing all the best art in in the United States. So it's kind of crazy wow yeah isn't it great. Yes she's kind of the worst kind of the best at the same question number five nameless Alice I will not go through the entire thing but I will hit the high notes when her father took office following an assassination. LS The nation assassination attempt an assassination so her father took office after an assassin else was assassinated Gotcha you. She became celebrity and fashion icon. At eight seventeen she smoked cigarettes in public rode and cars with men stayed at late partying kept pet snake named emily spinach and the White House and was seen placing bets with a bookie who is is this Alice think she's a Roosevelt. It is Alice Roosevelt. She was the only child of Theodore and his first wife Alice Hathaway Lee who is the one who died in Shelburne she was a real pistol and I love her dearly when it came time for the Roosevelt family to move out of the White House Alice buried a Voodoo doll of the new first lady Nellie Taft in the Front Yard Dr. She is the originator of the quote. If you can't say something good about someone sit right here by me so roosevelt is the first-person say that Rupaul yet not wind. Joe McCarthy had the balls to call her by her Christian name. She said quote Senator McCarthy. You are not going to call me Alice. The truck man the trash man and the policemen on my block may call me Alice but you may not she was was also gorgeous like the most beautiful thing and she died at like ninety six two's amazing. I might do an episode on her. As question number six the surname her name Mahler is most associated with the Bohemian Austrian composer and Conductor Gustav Mahler who made beautiful music but wasn't especially artistic. What profession is associated with the name Mahler Let's a good question how about housepainter that is what I'll take it. It's painter particularly specifically a stained glass painter German in origin as you may or that you're doing great question number seven. Lewis Carroll's character of Alice's one of the most enduring in beloved characters and Fantasy Children's literature but how many books about allison her adventures in Wonderland did Carol Darrelle right gets to it is too so as Alice's adventures in wonderland which was eighteen sixty five and through the looking glass and what Alice found there in eighteen seventy one however there have been numerous workspace on the characters by other writers and artists stuff like that okay question number eight the last name of Fletcher Church might bring to mind the character of Jessica Fletcher from the eternal TV show murder she wrote but I'm not entirely sure if anyone in that series died from crossbow what occupation is associated with with the name Fletcher aeromaker. Yes aerosmith or seller of arrows it is derived from middle English old English fuller or old French felt cheer intern turn from the old French flash which is aero question number nine. I saw you nodding as soon as I said it the WII phenomenon this WII phenomenon was published in nineteen seventy one purportedly a real diary of a deceased fifteen year old girl who descends into the world of drugs..

"Robin idols men with Keller Williams Realty Puget Sound. You're listening to a special broadcast of the Michael Medved Show. The calling the president who led us into the twentieth century, which has been called the American century. A certainly Theodore Roosevelt would have appreciated that designation this special broadcast. Theodore Roosevelt, the all American. Boy, he did finally with his father's help overcome the limitations of the asthma that almost killed him before the age of three but in eighteen seventy two when Roosevelt was still only thirteen. His father told him sickness is always a shame and often a sin. You must make your body. And he was determined to do that one of the ways that he did it was traveling with his family and traveling in the saddle he loved riding. He loved hunting, his father gave him a gun when he was fourteen and then was very disconcerted when when Theodore couldn't hit anything he always missed, and then he gave him spectacles, and that was much better because he was always nearsighted and then later in life. He injured himself from the White House doing boxing with a sparring partner who hit his eye and ended up detaching his retina in any event. He traveled with his family to Europe, he traveled with his family to Africa. He was mostly home schooled. And he was clearly a monumentally intelligent young man, and he entered Harvard in America's centennial year, eighteen seventy six and he entered just before he turned eighteen and at Harvard. He was something of a force of nature. And now he wanted to show people how manly and how strong he was despite the fact that he had relatively small stature. And he wasn't a naturally greatly gifted athlete, but a a young woman in Cambridge who met him when he was a freshman remembered him as. With being possessing, quote, stuffed snakes and lizards in his room with a peculiar violent vehemence of speech and manner, an overriding interest in everything. And there's a famous story of Theodore in geology class geology was one of his favorite subjects and at one point. He was so obstreperous in his geology class at Harvard. That his professor shouted back at him, see or here Roosevelt. Let me talk. He had a tough time letting other people talk throughout his life in his career. The worst moment of his life. Young life occurred in eighteen seventy eight. When he was still a junior at Harvard. And his father had taken ill. And it's it's actually an amazing story. His father had been nominated by president Rutherford b Hayes to be the customs collector for the port of New York, which was considered a very very important job and Hayes wanted to replace a fairly corrupt customs collector as he was supposed to be named Chester. A Arthur he was there in the job. But then in the Senate Roscoe, conquering who was a Senator from New York made a huge stink. And Theodore Roosevelt's senior was hugely embarrassed. Because the Senate would not approve his appointment, and it was shortly after that that he collapsed he became very ill. Theodore came down from Harvard to visit him as father seemed to rally with his oldest son's visit. But then on February ninth eighteen seventy eight. He died of what was called cancer of the bowel. It was a very very painful death is father was only forty six. And Theodore said, sometimes when I realized my loss, I feel as if I should go wild. He was everything to me. I have lost the only human being to whom I told everything with the help of my God, I will try to lead such a life as he would have wished and he remained obsessed with his father and trying to live up to his father's hopes for him. He he wrote three months after his father's death. I often feel badly. That's such a wonderful man is father would have had a son of. So little worth is. I. I realize more and more every day that I'm I am as much inferior to father morally and mentally as physically. It didn't stop him from an outstanding academic record one of the things that strikes you about Theodore Roosevelt. When you read his words when you read about this was an astonishingly brilliant, man. And so full of energy that his family actually thought it might be a problem for him. In fact, his father who he mourned so greatly wrote his energy seem so super abundant that I feel that may get the better of him in one way or another actually that happened. But later in the story. At harvard. He began working on an academic work about the naval war of eighteen twelve and it's brilliant. And it was published as a book, and it became a minor bestseller, and it still studied as a work of profound naval history. A whole analysis of the sailing ships in the war, and what gathered there, and again, this is the his work in college. He also qualified for Priscilla leeann club, which was considered the most prestigious club there. And he also met the most beautiful young woman. He ever saw decided immediately that he wanted to marry her and pursued her. He referred to her as a sunny faced Queen his bright bewitching, darling. So pure, and holy wrote that it almost seems profanation to touch her. Her name was Alice Hathaway Lee, and they became engaged and shortly thereafter, married. And he considered himself. The most fortunate man in the world to marry such a beauty, and and such a gem the marriage, however didn't last and didn't factor into the more dramatic events of his life. But it also led to the most painful day of his life. Which came just after his entry into politics. He had decided having thought about a career in science a career in writing. He did not want to go into business. He didn't feel that he had a particular field for business in any event. He had inherited something of a fortune from his father. So he ran for the New York assembly and at age twenty three he became the youngest man ever elected into the New York state legislature. But.

"Sixty eight AM the answer. You're listening to a special broadcast of the Michael Medved Show. Recalling the president who led us into the twentieth century, which has been called the American century. A certainly Theodore Roosevelt would have appreciated that designation this special broadcast. Theodore Roosevelt, the all American. Boy, he did finally with his father's help overcome the limitations of the asthma that almost killed him before the age of three but in eighteen seventy two when Roosevelt was still only thirteen. His father told him sickness is always a shame and often a sin. You must make your body. And he was determined to do that one of the ways that he did it was traveling with. His family and traveling in the saddle he loved riding. He loved hunting his father gave him a gun when he was fourteen and then was very disconcerted when when Theodore couldn't hit anything he always missed. And then he gave him spectacles, and that was much better because he was always nearsighted and then later in life. He injured himself from the White House doing boxing with a sparring partner who hit his eye and ended up detaching his retina in any event. He traveled with his family to Europe, he traveled with his family to Africa. He was mostly home schooled. And he was clearly a monumentally intelligent young man, and he entered Harvard in America's centennial year, eighteen seventy six and he entered just before he turned eighteen and at Harvard. He was something of a force of nature. And now he wanted to show people how manly and how strong he was despite the fact that he had relatively small stature. And he he wasn't a naturally greatly gifted athlete, but a a young woman in Cambridge who met him when he was a freshman remembered him as. With being possessing, quote, stuffed snakes and lizards in his room with a peculiar violent vehemence of speech and manner and an overriding interest in everything. And there's a famous story of Theodore in geology class geology was one of his favorite subjects and at one point. He was so obstreperous in his geology class at Harvard. That his professor shouted back at him sear here Roosevelt. Let me talk. He had a tough time letting other people talk throughout his life and his career. The worst moment of his life. Young life occurred in eighteen seventy eight. When he was still a junior at Harvard. And his father had taken ill. And it's it's actually an amazing story has father had been nominated by president Rutherford b Hayes to be the customs collector for the port of New York, which was considered a very very important job and Hayes wanted to replace a fairly corrupt customs collector as he was supposed to be named Chester. A Arthur he was there in the job. But then in the Senate Roscoe, conquering who was a Senator from New York made a huge stink. And Theodore Roosevelt, senior was hugely embarrassed. Because the Senate would not approve his appointment, and it was shortly after that that he collapsed he became very ill. Theodore came down from Harvard to visit him and his father seemed to rally with his oldest son's visit. But then on February ninth eighteen seventy eight. He died of what was called cancer of the bowel. It was a very, very painful death. His father was only forty six. And said sometimes when I realized my loss, I feel as if I should go wild. He was everything to me. I have lost the only human being to whom I told everything with the help of my God, I will try to lead such a life as he would have wished. And he remained of szeswith his father and trying to live up to his father's hopes for him. He he wrote three months after his father's death. I often feel badly. That's such a wonderful man is father would have had a son of. So little worth is. I. I realize more and more every day that I'm I am as much inferior to father morally and mentally as physically. It didn't stop him from an outstanding academic record one of the things that strikes you about Theodore Roosevelt. When you read his words when you read about him, this was an astonishingly brilliant, man. And so full of energy that his family actually thought it might be a problem for him. In fact, his father who he mourn, so greatly wrote his energy seem so super abundant that I feel it may get the better of him in one way or another actually that happened. But later in the story. At harvard. He began working on an academic work about the naval war of eighteen twelve and it's brilliant. And it was published as a book, and it became a minor bestseller. And it's still studied as a work of profound naval history. A whole analysis of the sailing ships in the war, and what gathered there, and again, this is the his work in college. He also qualified for pursell, Ian club, which was considered the most prestigious club there and. He also meant the most beautiful young woman. He ever saw decided immediately that he wanted to marry her and pursued her. He referred to her as his sunny faced Queen his bright bewitching, darling. So pure, and holy he wrote that it almost seems profanation to touch her. Her name was Alice Hathaway Lee, and they became engaged and shortly thereafter, married. And he considered himself. The most fortunate men in the world to marry such a beauty, and and such a gem the marriage, however didn't last and didn't factor into the more dramatic events of his life.

"I'm John Batchelor. This is the John Batchelor show. Edward Picone is the editor and annotation writer and introduction. Introductory material. Writer for new book a collection of the diaries of Theodore Roosevelt, eighteen seventy seven when he was nineteen years old to eight hundred eighty six when he's nine years older. Twenty eight years old. This is the formative period of Theodore Roosevelt, moving from being a Harvard, man and his son and his father's a brightest Joel to becoming a man of the world who knows tragedy and at the same time is frantic about acting as an athlete as a hero as an outdoorsman as a rancher. He goes in all directions all the time and the legend of Theodore Roosevelt is based upon the experiences as a young man when he has most fluid movement because his early marriage will not last that introduces of course, a the reintroduces us to. A younger flame Edith caro- will become the first lady in the twentieth century. But for now, he's back in New York and part of the salt, stall and Lee. Agreement to this marriage of these young people is that they will live with Roosevelt's mother on fifty west on just off Fifth Avenue and fifty seventh street in New York motherland he calls her. Why Ted what what what attracted the lease and the salt installs to miss his Roosevelt. Missile Roosevelt is I think very similar to Alice Lee after remember that mini. Bullock Roosevelt is not New York knickebocker. She's a southern Belle. She was bred many of the ways of the Alice Hathaway Lee was she's she's petite, and she's pretty and she is the perfect New York hostess amp, perhaps he's also something of a chaperone as well. So you have this twenty two year old in nineteen year old setting up house together, I think some credibly comforting for the Boston families to know that there's actually somebody there to take care of them. And not just of course, a Midi Bullock Roosevelt. But the sisters are there as well. And as you say, this is the gilded age elite of New York, there's also a slew of servants as well. Ted introduces us to a stroll through New York that Ted if we could travel in a time machine, we wanna walk beside Theodore Roosevelt on this John. He makes each day six miles to and from the Columbia law school, which at this point is downtown right across right around from Brooks brothers. It's early. The law school is only twenty years old, but he has to walk from fifty seventh street, and any reason down Broadway. What does he see in that in that John each morning and each afternoon, well, probably he'd head south on sit avenue. And so this is exactly the moment where the great chateau's of the gilded age or being built. So you can see William Vanderbilt's a huge mansion. A fifty seconds street being built a Saint Patrick's cathedral has just been built the Waldorf Astoria is there, but the same time as the gets farther south, you also probably has to skirt some of the kind of sketchy. Areas of New York City as well going through the eighteenth ward that has forty thousand residents. You know in tenements, he skirts, the Bowery and New York at the time. I mean, this is actually the issue that will bring Roosevelt into politics, very unsafe unhealthy and filthy city. So if he's really actively making this trip back and forth every single day. He is probably having to walk around heaps of garbage stepping over dead, horses and stepping over drunks sleeping it off. And even perhaps seeing some of the barefoot news, boys. Orphans living on the street that this bother had tried to take care of in the news, boys lodging house. I liked the law school very much. I did he see himself as a lawyer. Or was he thinking politician, remembering of course, his father's rebuked by the politicians of New York. I think he saw being a lawyer, you know, thinking of some of the close friends of the family like ally who wrote I think he probably saw this as a gentleman's way into the world of living in New York City as the head of the Roosevelt family. He was interested in the law. He was interested in history. But it takes a little while to start attending those political meetings just around the corner from his house, the Astra's control, New York society and in January of eighteen eighty one and again in February there's the patriarchs ball, which the Roosevelt's the young Roosevelt are sure to attend. What did it mean? And why was he keen on the patriarchs ball? The patriarchs ball was at the patriarchs of New York. The group of families were recognized as the leading families of the city and the Roosevelt absolutely were. I mean by the time all Roosevelt's birth. There was a Roosevelt street there will soon to be a Roosevelt hospital Roosevelt aren't just a name that we know now because of the president who have been Roosevelt's they were atop family for generations. And so for Roosevelt. This means an almost I mean, if you were exhausted out in the main would, you know in the rain and listening to Roosevelt take shots after shots. I was exhausted by the endless round of dinner parties and going to balls and going to the opera. And of course, you have to be dressed to the nines. This means being dressed in silk top hat and tails wherever you go. I think for Roosevelt. This is very. Very important to be part of this society to make these connections. He certainly loves sitting between the young ladies and making conversation with. But also at some point, I think he might start getting a bit tired of this. Once again, analysts Lee was born for this. He loves bringing Alice lead, all these places on his arm. She is the most beautiful charming of young ladies. And of course, only nineteen twenty years old. But at some point he gets a little tired and does not while. I'm very happy that we get to stay in today. Yes. A detail here because she will come back Edith caro- April. I took Edith Corre Edith to drive while Alice's away. He goes driving with Edith caro-. We can only guess what that conversation wise Edith. What was she doing? She was now a spinster. I guess she's going to be in her twenties. She won't marry till twenty six was was she had home. Was she waiting for the do? We have any insight as to how she was. Was thinking of this marriage between a dynamo. And what you'd have to say is a porcelain doll. Yeah. I don't think she was necessarily. I don't see it as somebody who was waiting around for years for Theodore Roosevelt. And I think she as much snubbed him as anything else after that summer house, but their families do know each other, they are childhood friends. They do run in the same circles now, especially that Roosevelt is back in New York City. And so as you say, it's very interesting that she's in his life. She's out of his life. She's in his life. She's out of his life. She is you know, the specter. That's always there in the shadows. But I think it's definitely a two way street. Well, Henry Henry James would enjoy this tattoo. He would enjoy it. He would work this over with four hundred word sentences. All right, five, let's get into politics. The twenty first district that's Roosevelt's district. This is April all of a sudden street cleanings important to him. Why? There was a there is no separate streets cleaning department. This is why the city is so filthy. It's actually under the police commissioned Roosevelt will one day be part of and there's a Bill at one point to establish a separate department of street cleaning and the current legislator for the twenty first district votes against it. And Roosevelt says that's it. I'm going to set out to kill the Representative from the twenty first district until this is all things what the great progressive, president stands up to talk about for the first time in these Republican meetings and more Mahal about how dirty the streets are about something so Monday as street cleaning, the politics of New York at this point are dominated by Tammany hall, and the Irish and Theodore Roosevelt knows that. And he spends his time of the patriarchs. Paul looking down. Everyone's knows at the politicians in the city where is it in him that he wants to reform the apparatus that works. So completely well around him. Why why does he want to take that leap after all? That's not. That's not what he went to school with. That's not what he's going to law school. With those aren't the people he celebrates with. Absolutely. And in New York at the time, unlike Boston where the sons of the Boston Brahmin did enter politics like our friend Henry Cabot lodge for the most part, but sons of the New York at lea- voided politics like the plague because it was such a dirty corrupt business. But. Theodore Roosevelt, senior remember back to the customs house fight when he was nominated to be senior was nominated to be a reformer to take on the corrupt Republican machine in New York City that involved Chester Arthur, so this is something that's in his blood from his father, and it's only been reinforced in his four years at Boston in the salons of chestnut hill of that political reform is something that is part of the responsibility. I think it's a strong part of the sense of Noblesse would lease that inherits from his father Theodore Roosevelt is headed to Albany. He's going to enter politics elective politics soon enough, the most glorious ride the diaries of Theodore Roosevelt, eighteen seventy seven to eighteen eighty six. The editor is Ted cone.

"He enters into the wider world and politics in Washington. This is the period. However as a young man, he loses his father, and then is rebuffed or believes he's rebuked by his childhood sweetheart Edith caro- of a very prominent family and eat it is everything you want in a first lady will become a spectacular. First lady in the twentieth century and lives till nineteen forty eight at this point, however of the seventeen years old, and she and Theodore break off Theodore goes into frantic activity as as Ted indicates, but he's back to Harvard now at the end of September into October studying very hard after a period in Maine. We made mention of this because. There are several trips to Maine a place called man, Matt one where he takes the train up, and then goes hunting and snowshoeing and hiking and shooting all the time. What does he get out of these these hunting trips because really it wore me down how many small animals he killed? Yeah. I mean on the one hand, this is one of these wonderful town Trask about Theodore Roosevelt that probably you. And I both love. He's the soldier who wins the Nobel peace prize. He's the natural scientist who becomes who's also a hunter and becomes what a great conservationist in American history. Again. I just think he's he's someone who is with Dow door before this trip to the main would this is really the first trip he ever took primarily for hunting. He went birding in the Adirondacks. He'll go back to the main would eventually go out west for his first trip out west with his brother Elliott, and then to the cattle ranches and further hunting trips to the Alcorn mountain. So I mean, I think it's both his interest in science. His love of the outdoors has love of the Manley sporting life being outside alone. Roughing it in the company of other men, and I do think it is still following his father's advice to make his body because this is a very kind of physically tossed experience at Roosevelt is putting themselves through any still experiencing asthma at this point the harm the life at Harvard is a spectacular also because we can peek into what was the the pinnacle of society and scholarship in America in eighteen seventy eight eight thousand eighteen seventy nine he's inventive. He's invited to clubs to what looks to be societies Porcelli, and we know very well his cousin younger cousin Franklin Delano. Roosevelt was also parcel Ian club or as he short hands at the Poor's. There's another club. He's also invited into. And then there's a lot of drinking, drinking and smoking and celebration. I get the sense that this is the social side of Harvard, and I'm not sure whether Theodore. Embraces it or not because he's also very keen on being a scholar. Does he make a choice at this point? I think he's making a choice at this point, especially because of his courtship of Alice Hathaway Lee on the one hand is a scholar on the other hand, I'm Jerry, I suddenly become very happy for Roosevelt that he has. It's very active social life that you spending hours and hours wiling away the days at the club. Playing billiards is drinking champagne having hasn't dinners. But there is no way that natural. Scientists Theodore Roosevelt is going to be welcomed into the homes and the families of the lodges or the salt installs or the lease and having inherited this nice bit of money from his father. Suddenly his expenses just explode and one of the major expenses. Now. Suddenly, it's gifts to the young ladies, especially Alice, Hathaway, Lee and her cousin rose solve install. His love of luxury is now being head of the family whose desire to court Alice Hathaway Lee, eventually marry her. There's no way an impoverished natural. Scientists could do these things the lease. They are a banking family. They live nearby chestnut hill which is refined an elite part of Boston still. But in those days, it was the pinnacle of American society in Boston, the leaser bankers, and the salt installs are everything. And at some point. I'm always looking for the the novel inside the diaries Ted at some point it occurred to me that what Theodore was doing was a Bush pursuing a father figure in an Alice Lee's father. Mr. and MRs salt, install he likes the way. The couples regard him they they flattery min at the same time. They take sympathy autumn any he enjoys it far more than he seems to enjoy it when he's home with his own mother. It's amazing. How much time he really spends leaving in these people's houses. So he starts only a couple of years before as being almost kind of a loner an outsider and within a couple of years. He's welcomed really as an intimate as one of their own into this very closed almost inbred elite all the Boston Brahmin. And so he's finding absolutely he's finding the brother figures in all of these other young men at Harvard, and he's finding very important father figures, especially in Mr. Solomon, stall. I think the father of his good friend, Richard told install Alice Lee is very young she's younger than either caro- and her parents are aware of the fact that she's being romanced. However, it's it looks to be acceptable to them dick salts install. Who is a very good friends with Theodore he and Theodore. For our work together, very carefully at Harvard. So Theodore is made an honorary son of Boston at this point. And yet his Orion tation, always remains New York. He's the insider from outside. I have to mention one figure of his youth. It puzzled me Ted. How my not the my not family of Boston. There's a note in September seventy eight poor. How my not there's something about him being insane and being committed what happened? Yeah. He seems like he is perhaps a very sensitive young, man. Maybe something that today. We would say he perhaps suffers some kind of depression or even bipolar disorder. But at some point he has some kind of a breakdown, and he has to leave Harvard, and he's basically committed to an institution and does not return. And so it's very interesting that was one of his very first friend at a fellow naturalist as well who kind of helped feed Roosevelt's desire to be a natural scientists, and I'm not trying to say anything bad about my not. But, you know, maybe it's not such a bad thing for us Ferozwala future life and career that this person who is perhaps a bit of an enabler for Roosevelt and pursuing natural science career in the end drops out and really not much of a fig. Gear except in correspondence in Roosevelt life anymore in eighteen seventy nine. This is the end of his year. He again is always on the move. He wears me down. This is back to the end of his junior year. It ends in June of eighteen seventy nine any returns to always to oyster bay that he'll eventually build at sagamore hill that vast estate you can visit today that is a museum to the Roosevelt presidency. Sailing shooting rowing flirting. There are a number of young women's names who enter in. So though Alice Lee is safely in Boston. He's pursuing Emily swan. The names are spectacular tad. These these are all out of turn of the century novels. Henry James could borrow all these names for his work. And then they go off to Maine all of a sudden he's in Maine again, August twenty third he's going to claw. He's up at katahdin, and he doesn't seem to mind getting wet and tramping and fishing for trout and not having a tent or a cover and having to leave his close to dry out. I've been wet in Maine, Ted, I mind a lot. What is it with Dr? I'm not so sure it's something I really like about him dead on the one hand is a lover of luxury. He is spending money hand over fist by the time of his junior and senior year at Harvard and yet he loves he loves roughing it. He loves the outdoors. There seems to be something almost spiritual in the way that he communed with nature whenever those kind of the darkness or the doubts or the uncertainty or memories about his father memories about Edith caro- tend to you know, start encroaching on him. This is something he goes into the field. Another new book by Michael tan field talks about and he kind of reinvigorates himself, and he finds the energy to go on and shoot and shoot and showed any false himself for being a terrible shot. He was nearsighted. He he hasn't yet. Started to wear bifocals spectacles. That he calls them all the time. He needed them. And yet the shooting is constant. In fact, my ears are ringing there, so many. I mean, just a natural just a casual day September twentieth. Nine rough grouse bang, bang, bang, bang, nothing but shooting in the Maine woods, and then when he gets back he's shooting. Let's go back to Harvard because there's a correspondence that's quite separate from the diary is he spilling his heart to his mother or his sisters while he's keeping this diary. Is there an expansive Theodore Roosevelt, or is this very careful, man. The same person in the letters. Now, I think there's a real intimacy in the diary that sometimes you can get a hint of in the letters as well. And so sometimes as he's recounting is day or his week to his mother. And then you don't forget he was a fabulous. Observer so aside from teaching Sunday school he didn't allow himself to do sports. He didn't allow himself to do any studying. So this was a letter writing day so often it was very interesting to put his letters side by side with the diaries and see how the kind of reinforced is take his account on his days and weeks at Harvard. We end eighteen seventy nine with the name Allison rose Lee, commonplace along with assault installs and his very good friend Harry Shaw, he has called on friends as he reaches New York. And there's another mention of caro- Edith is a spectra through these through these. Diaries, but she will reemerge when Theodore Roosevelt needs her. She is the heroine of this story. The book is a most glorious ride the diaries of Theodore Roosevelt, eighteen seventy seven eight hundred eighty six at edited by Edward p Ted cone when we come back, the wife and the marriage.

And what you'd have to say is a porcelain doll. Yeah. I don't think she was necessarily. I don't see as somebody who was waiting around for years for theatre Roosevelt. And I think she as much snubbed him as anything else after that summer house, but their families do know each other, they are childhood friends. They do run in the same circles now, especially that Roosevelt is back in New York City. And so as you say, it's very interesting that she's in his life. She's she's in his life. She's out of his life. See his, you know, the specter that always there in the shadows. But I think it's it's definitely a two way street. Henry Henry James would enjoy this Ted. He would enjoy it. He would work this over with four hundred words sentences. All right, five, let's get into politics. The twenty first district that's Roosevelt's test. This is April all of a sudden street cleanings important to him. Why? There was a there is no separate streets planning department. This is why the city is so filthy. It's actually under the police commission that Roosevelt will one day be part of. And there's a Bill at one point to establish a separate department of street cleaning and the current legislator for the twenty first district votes against it. And Roosevelt says that's it. I'm going to set out to kill the Representative from the twenty first district until this is of all things what the great progressive president stands up to talk about for the first time in these Republican meetings and more hall about how dirty the streets are about something. So mundane as street cleaning, the politics of New York at this point are dominated by Tammany hall, and the Irish and Theodore Roosevelt knows that. And he spends his time at the patriarchs. Ball looking down. Everyone's knows at the politicians in the city where is it in him that he wants to reform the apparatus that works. So completely well around him. Why why does he want to take that leap after all? That's not. That's not what he went to school with. That's not what he's going to law school. With those aren't the people he celebrates with. Absolutely. And in New York at the time, unlike Boston where the sons of the Boston Brahmin did enter politics like our friend Henry Cabot lodge for the most part with songs of the New York that lead a void politics. Like the plague because it was such a dirty corrupt business. But. Theodore Roosevelt, senior remember back to the customs house fight when he was nominated to be senior was nominated to be a reformer to take on the corrupt Republican machine in New York City that involve Chester, Arthur. So this is something that's in his blood from his father, and it's only been reinforced in his four years in Boston, and the salons of chestnut hill of that political reform is something that is part of the responsibility. I think it's a strong part of the sense of Noblesse of lease that inherits from his father Theodore Roosevelt is headed to all the he's going to enter politics elective politics soon enough most glorious ride the diaries of Theodore Roosevelt, eighteen seventy seven to eighteen eighty hundred sixty editor is Ted cone.

But then I doubled tragedy is mother and his wife die within hours of each other. He has now an infant girl. He has no particular way of understanding to raise Alice who will become an extremely famous person in the twentieth. Century Alice Roosevelt, a wonder and I recommend to everyone. However at this point she is a reminder of his tragedy and his heartbreak that's why he calls her baby leave for a while. And not Alice at all. Ted. Teddy Roosevelt is born into a very well to do family living in New York whose grandfather whose his father to the young Roosevelt. Yeah, we forget, you know Roosevelt remains today. The only American president ever born in New York City and Roosevelt's routes in Manhattan. Go back to the time. When it was new Amsterdam by the time Roosevelt is born. There's already a Roosevelt street. They're soon going to be a Roosevelt hospital. His grandfather is Cornelius van shack. Roosevelt. One of the richest men in New York City, you know, responsible for banking mining shipping, and his father is Theodore Roosevelt senior who is a partner in the family from Roosevelt and son, but never seems to have really a mind for business. He's much more interested in his Philip rampant philanthropic work in New York City. He helps found the Metropolitan Museum of art helps found the American Museum of natural history and lots of charities for news boys who are homeless for people who need. Cepeda help. And so you can kind of see these different effects on Roosevelt on the one hand Roosevelt is born with a silver spoon in his mouth. But he's also in fused by his father with a sense of Noblesse old lease that with great wealth with great responsibility comes responsibility for your community comes for with responsibility. For those less fortunate in your in your town in your city. He's very carefully educated. He travels to Europe, I think twice with his family. And he warships his father who dies very young. He dies at forty six. Suddenly one Christmas he gets ill. And then he's dead. At this point. Theodore Roosevelt has looked to the world is looked to go off to Harvard. He is heartbreak losing his father and Harvard. Cambridge is he attracted to the world of Boston. Which at this point was the intellectual center of America. Yeah. I think if there was one thing that was ever going to sever possibly sour Roosevelt's connection with New York City really wasn't the west. It was Boston in Boston. He found as you say it was it was the Athens of America. It was the scientific center the academic center the poetic center, the literary center of the United States. He became best friends with a Boston Brahmin elite, the seond or these great east coast shipping families banking family. Of course, that's where he found his future wife, Alice Hathaway, Lee. So it's best friends were in Boston. His wife and family were in Boston. And also, I mean Boston did have this idea that his father had tried to invest in Roosevelt. The Boston Brahmin, of course, one of the things that they poured their money back into. Was the community was things like Harvard University. And also the Boston Brahmin allowed their sons to enter politics something that was very rare in New York at the time. So when as we were talking about Roosevelt entering the assembly in Albany. This was something that the wealthy sons in New York City, did not do I think this is certainly one of the many lessons that he brought back with him to New York from Harvard Cambridge Boston and chestnut hill after his father's death. And we've talked about him on the assembly, but losing Alice and his mother within days is heavy on his heart. You quote from his diary at the time, and he doesn't express his grief. But we do know that he threw himself into a frantic activity. Chiefly now going out west. And here you challenge, you are revisions distortion you challenge the assumptions of nineteenth century and twentieth century biographer. Talk about Roosevelt who argue that. He was shaped by the west, how do you respond Ted? Yeah. I mean, when you think about his time in the west, I mean, certainly the man most responsible for Roosevelt's western edge is Theodore Roosevelt. He emphasized a tremendously during his life in his autobiography and historians and biographers have kind of taken him at his word. But Roosevelt had political reasons to emphasize us to kind of emphasize a more popular and populist image to transcend, this narrow demographic that he represented in Manhattan's upper crust and also personal reasons to emphasize the manly and the masculine which is what his work as a cattle, rancher and cowboy and hunter was but at the end of the day, he only spent about eighteen months in residence out in his cattle ranchers, and you've been really become a towel. Boy, his ranch hand referred to him as Mr. Roosevelt, and he was always making. Trips back to New York City significantly he made trips packs in New York City in October of eighteen eighty four eighteen eighty five Tober eighteen eighty six which was both campaign season in New York City. But it was also nomination time Roosevelt not only wanted to keep a hand in who became the candidates in his city, which is how he always referred to New York City. But certainly by eighteen eighty six he was probably hoping that one of those nominations would be thrown his way the book is about Theodore Roosevelt's New York heir to the empire City, New York in the making Theodore Roosevelt, Edward Picone is the author and we're going to go to Roosevelt campaigning for James g Blaine in eighty four.

Boy, he did finally with his father's help overcome the limitations of the asthma that almost killed him before the age of three but in eighteen seventy two when Roosevelt was still only thirteen. His father told him sickness is always a shame and often a sin. You must make your body. And he was determined to do that one of the ways that he did it was. Was traveling with his family and traveling in the saddle he loved riding. He loved hunting his father gave him a gun when he was fourteen and then was very disconcerted when when Theodore couldn't hit anything he always missed. And then he gave him spectacles, and that was much better because he was always nearsighted and then later in life. He injured himself in the White House doing boxing with a sparring partner who hit his eye and ended up detaching his retina in any event. He traveled with his family to Europe, he traveled with his family to Africa. He was mostly home schooled. And he was clearly a mind you, mentally intelligent young man, and he entered Harvard in America's centennial year, eighteen seventy six and he entered just before he turned eighteen and at Harvard. He was something of a force of nature. And now he wanted to show people how manly and how strong he was despite the fact that he had relatively small stature. And he wasn't a naturally greatly gifted athlete, but a a young woman in Cambridge who met him when he was a freshman remembered him as.

Young life occurred in eighteen seventy eight. When he was still a junior at Harvard. And his father had taken ill. And it's it's actually an amazing story. His father had been nominated by president Rutherford b Hayes to be the customs collector for the port of New York, which was considered a very very important job and Hayes wanted to replace a fairly corrupt customs collector, he was supposed to be named Chester.

Theodore came down from Harvard to visit him at his father's seemed to rally with his oldest son's visit. But then on February ninth eighteen seventy eight. He died of what was called cancer of the bowel. It was a very very painful death is father was only forty six. And Theodore said, sometimes when I realized my loss, I feel as if I should go wild. He was everything to me. I have lost the only human being to whom I told everything with the help of my God, I will try to lead such a life as he would have wished. And he remained obsessed with his father and trying to live up to his father's hopes for him. He he wrote three months after his father's death. I often feel badly.
