Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Henry Fairfield Osborn

Description:

Theodore Roosevelt believes that Carl Akeley should be satisfied with getting a bull elephant with tusks that weigh sixty pounds apiece while in Africa. Roosevelt is starting a study of concealing coloration and asks Henry Fairfield Osborn if the American Museum would be interested in publishing such a study.

Hermann Hagedorn and Carl Ethan Akeley at Roosevelt House

Description:

Various views from many different camera angles of Hermann Hagedorn, Roosevelt Memorial Association director and secretary, and Carl E. Akeley, Roosevelt Memorial Association trustee, in Roosevelt House. Film begins with a stage in an auditorium, empty except for three chairs and a table with book and papers on it; Hagedorn and Akeley enter, Akeley sits, Hagedorn speaks and introduces Akeley who speaks as Hagedorn sits. There are various shots of Akeley speaking, Hagedorn sitting behind him and a bust of Theodore Roosevelt. A close-up of Akeley speaking fades out to a motion picture screen. Hagedorn is then seen sitting at a desk, browsing through a notebook, and looking into space as if thinking. The film then returns to Hagedorn standing and talking in the auditorium, followed by two takes of Akeley sitting at a desk, unfolding a letter, putting on glasses, reading the letter, and marking it with a pen.
