Letter from the Olmsted Brothers landscape architecture firm detailing their progress on the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial to Gisela Westoff, Assistant Secretary of the Roosevelt Memorial Association, later Theodore Roosevelt Association. Upon the request of the architect John Russell Pope, a member of the Olmsted Brothers firm reports that the terrain of the island has been examined thoroughly. The letter goes on to apologize for a delay in plans due to one of the Olmsted brothers being ill and reports that Henry Vincent Hubbard has taken over the project.
