Description

This 8.75" x 6.5" (22.23 x 16.51 cm) photograph of Theodore Roosevelt was taken in May 1912 during a campaign stop in Sandusky, Ohio. Roosevelt had already served two terms as president (1901-1909), but made an unsuccessful bid for the presidency in 1912 as a member of the Bull Moose Party. Roosevelt (1858-1919) was elected governor of New York in 1898. He was then picked as William McKinley's running mate in the 1900 election. After the assassination of President McKinley in 1901, Roosevelt assumed the presidency. After leaving the presidency in 1909, Roosevelt went on an African safari, but soon jumped back into politics. In 1912 he ran for president on the Progressive ticket. To reporters he once remarked that he felt as fit as a "bull moose" which became the name of his new party.
