Commemorate the life of Progressive Era President Theodore Roosevelt. A prolific reader and writer, he was our youngest president. This bust makes a great gift for history and political buffs and is a handsome decorative element to add to an office or bookshelf.
After President McKinley was assassinated, Theodore Roosevelt became the youngest president in history at not yet 43. The energetic young Commander in Chief led Congress toward progressive reforms and a strong foreign policy. He saw his role as president as a “steward of the people” and sought to broaden the use of executive power. Roosevelt was instrumental in ensuring the construction of the Panama Canal, and domestically he added to the national forests in the west, reserved lands for public use, and also fostered great irrigation projects.
