Title:

Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Frederick Jackson Turner

Collection:

Harvard College Library

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.
