Original Vanity Fair Text included :" Theodore Roosevelt, twenty-sixth and youngest President of the United States have ever known, was born in 1858...He was blunt, well-read, ambitious young fellow...Western Plains expanded his chest and his mind, developed a notable biceps...With a lariat he could noose the off foreleg of a running Texan steer-a feat which lifted him to a high place mid cowboy aristocracy ... Among the dozen books he has been guilty is one called The Strenuous Life. Such is his own." Roosevelt held office from 1901-1909.
We see him in a confident pose, mustache and top hat, ready to take on the world.
James Montgomery Flagg (1877-1960). American artist, illustrator, caricaturist. Flagg studied fine art in London and Paris from 1898–1900, after which he returned to the United States, where he produced countless illustrations for books, magazine covers, political and humorous cartoons, advertising, and spot drawings. It is suitable that the visiting American caricaturist capture his own President complete with determined stare through elegant spectacles, resplendent suit, top hat and neatly trimmed mustache.
