Immediate Source of Acquisition
The Roosevelt class was originally the major part of the Roosevelt Memorial Library, assembled 1920-1923 by the Roosevelt Memorial Association (since 1953, Theodore Roosevelt Association) and kept at Roosevelt House, the restored Theodore Roosevelt birthplace in New York City, until presented to Harvard University in 1943. Additional items in this class were added by gifts from the association, the Roosevelt family, and others, and by purchase.
