Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Frederick Jackson Turner

Description:

Civil Service Commissioner Theodore Roosevelt discusses Professor Frederick Jackson Turner's review of two volumes of The Winning of the West. Although Roosevelt planned to write about the Yazoo land claims in the fourth volume, Turner's criticism has led him to believe that he did not put enough emphasis on the proceedings of the different land companies in his previous volumes. Roosevelt asks where he can find descriptions of land companies in the Canadian archives. He notes that he was not able to use the Draper manuscripts for the first two volumes, although he has since been able to obtain copies of the originals.

Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Frederick Jackson Turner

Description:

Civil Service Commissioner Theodore Roosevelt was pleased to discover that Professor Frederick Jackson Turner was the reviewer for The Winning of the West. Roosevelt agrees that there are new fields for research in Western history, although he "has always been more interested in the men themselves than in the institutions through and under which they worked." He admires Turner's pamphlet and hopes that Turner will write a serious work on the subject. Thanking Turner for his references to the Canadian Archives, he notes that the land companies were perhaps "more important on paper" than in their actual effects. Roosevelt mentions that he is a busy man and that he is tempted to "get entirely out of political life."
