PRESIDENTIAL AUTHORSHIP, PART 3
[Theodore Roosevelt, 1858–1919, 28th President of the United States, statesman, author, explorer, naturalist and reformer.]
Roosevelt’s strenuous lifestyle overcame a sickly childhood. His rigorous homeschooling encouraged a livelong commitment as a naturalist. Once at Harvard, he found the time in 1882 to write The Naval War of 1812, still considered a seminal work that had a significant impact on evolution of the U.S. Navy.
