of four siblings and father of six children, T.R. reigned
over one of the noisiest, most child friendly White House
Administrations. A product of the Victorian Era, T.R.
held that the responsibilities of home and hearth,
especially child rearing, were the most important for modern
Americans. Laugh and smile as T.R. recounts stories
from his own childhood as well as tales of his own parenting

and of his big game hunts in Africa and South America will

- Law Enforcement -
Serving as the President of the Police Commission in New
York City, where his reforms professionalized the force,
T.R.'s requirement that New York policemen demonstrate
proficiency in the use of a standard issue firearm heralded
the dawn of the modern police academy. Rock with
delight as T.R. recounts his stories of roaming Manhattan in
the middle of the night to ensure that officers were on duty
and that the laws were fairly enforced.
- Military and Veteran
Organizations - Not only was T.R. a Lieutenant
Colonel in the U.S. Army during the Cuban-American War, he

will enjoy the many tales of T.R. the military man.
