Who Was Theodore Roosevelt?
A sickly child who spent hours at home studying natural history
A cowboy who loved the American frontier
The twenty-sixth president of the United States
He was only 42 years old when he was sworn in as President of the United States in 1901, making TR the youngest president ever. But did you know that he was also the first sitting president to win the Nobel Peace Prize? The first to ride in a car? The first to fly in an airplane? Theodore Roosevelt’s achievements as a naturalist, hunter, explorer, author, and soldier are as much a part of his fame as any office he held as a politician.
