Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Charles G. Washburn

Description:

During his presidency, Theodore Roosevelt did meet with Booker T. Washington to discuss the appointment of Judge Jones but he wasn't going to appoint Jones solely on Washington's recommendation. The dinner with Washington created a scandal even though Roosevelt had previously socialized with African Americans. The dinner was a mistake as it was certain to be misunderstood. Roosevelt misjudged the intellectual and moral state of Southern whites and African Americans.
