Theodore Roosevelt Island is located in the Potomac River in Washington D.C. The island was purchased in 1931 by the Theodore Roosevelt Association with the intention of building a memorial for Roosevelt and given to the National Park Service for administration. The Island was dedicated in 1967 and includes a seventeen foot statue of Roosevelt.
This collection was digitized on-site prior to the formation of the Theodore Roosevelt Digital Library and donated by National Park staff to our collections. It was cataloged by digital library staff after the images were received. The items in this collection document the history of the Island as well as the development and maintenance of the Roosevelt memorial.
