Theodore Roosevelt, Jr. (October 27, 1858 – January 6, 1919), also known as T.R., and to the public (but never to friends and intimates) as Teddy, was the twenty-sixth President of the United States, and a leader of the Republican Party and of the Progressive Movement. He became the youngest President in United States history at the age of 42. He served in many roles including Governor of New York, historian, naturalist, explorer, author, and soldier. Roosevelt is most famous for his personality: his energy, his vast range of interests and achievements, his model of masculinity, and his "cowboy" persona. His last name, often mispronounced, per Roosevelt, is correctly pronounced "Rosavelt"
Views on race
As a student at Columbia and Harvard, Roosevelt studied social Darwinism and its relationship to race and society. He studied under professor John Burgess that superior races had the responsibility to help in the advancement of inferior races.
"All the great masterful races have been fighting races, and the minute that a race loses the hard fighting virtues it has lost its proud right to stand as the equal to the best."
