Compatriot Medal of Honor Recipients

Theodore Roosevelt, Jr.

Theodore Roosevelt, Jr. was the son of President Theodore Roosevelt. He was born on September 13, 1887, at the family estate in Oyster Bay, New York. Roosevelt graduated from Harvard University in 1908 and entered the business world in the steel and carpet industries before becoming a branch manager of an investment bank.

After service as an officer and rising to the rank of lieutenant colonel during World War I, Roosevelt began his political career in the New York State Assembly. He later was to serve as assistant secretary of the Navy, the governor of Puerto Rico from 1929 to 1932, and the governor General of the Philippines from 1932 until 1933. He resigned and returned to the U.S. shortly after his cousin, Franklin D. Roosevelt, was elected President of the United States. He served as Vice President at Doubleday Publishing Company, later serving as chairman of the board of the American Express Company, as vice president for Boy Scouts of America, and as president of the National Health Council.
When the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British parliament was advised by an artful man [Sir William Keith], who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people. That it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them. But that they should not do it openly; but to weaken them and let them sink gradually, by totally disusing and neglecting the militia.
