Theodore Roosevelt is unquestionably one of the giants of American political history. A veritable dynamo both in and out of office, Roosevelt was nothing less than a turn-of-the-century Renaissance man who combined a scholar's keen intellect with a rough-and-tumble spirit of adventure. As this Nation's twenty-sixth President, Roosevelt may be best remembered for developing his own "corollary" to James Monroe's famous doctrine of 1823 and then using American military muscle to bring its tenets to life.
