NEW YORK. Jan. 6. Col. Theodore Roosevelt died at his home in Oyster Bay early today. News of the former President’s death was received by Misu Josephine Strieker, the Colonel’s secretary, in a telephone message from Mrs. Roosevelt. Miss Strieker said the Colonel had suffered an attack of inflammatory rheumatism New year’s day and had since been more or less confined to his room.
Three physicians had been in attendance on Col. Roosevelt since he was taken to the Roosevelt hospital seven weeks ago* Forty-eignt hours before Roosevelt’s death he had been \ visited by one of his physicians who stated that he found the former pres- ! ident.apparently in good health and good spirits.
I Vat Ii Unexpected.
The former president came to Sagamore Hill home from Roosevelt hospital on Christmas day but a week later was stricken v I*'n a severe attack of rheumatism and sciatica from which he had been suffering for some time. The rheumatism affected his right hand and it became much swollen, but none had any idea death was so near.
The former president sat up most of Sunday and retired at ll o'clock last night. About 4 A. M. Hrs. Roosevelt, the only other member of the Cam fly at Oyster Bay. went to her husband's room and found he had died during the night.
Telegrams were dispatched today to the Colonel’s children who were in other parts o fthe country. Two of the Colonel’s sons. Major Theodore Roosevelt Jr.. and Capt. Kermit Roosevelt* are in service abroad. Capf Archie Roosevelt and his wife left New York last night for Boston. Details for the funeral have not been arranged but an announcement is expected later in the daYx
Biograph!* a1 Sketch.
Of Dutch ancestry, born in New York City on October 27, 1858, in a house' in Hast Twentieth street, the baby Theodore was a weakling. He was one of four children who came to Theodore and Martha Bulloch Roosevelt. The mother was of South em stock and the father of Northern, a situation which during the early years of Theodore, Junior’s boyhood was not allowed to interfere with the family life of these children during the Civil war days.
He entered Harvard University at age of IT and there succeeded in i freeing hinislf of his early'infirmities and developed a strong and vigorous constitution which stood him well in hand during the subsequent strenuous career to w hich he w as destined.
His political career began in 1882 when he was elected to the New York legislature to which he was re-elected in 1883 and 1884. In 1886 he was an unsuccessful candidate for the office of mayor of New York. In 188'» he was appointed to the civil , service commission, resigning to become police commissoner of New* York, going thence in to the office of assistant secretary of the navy. At the outbreak of the war with ?pain j he formed the Rough Rider regiment of which Leonard Wood was made colonel at Roosevelt’s request, himself accepting the lieutenant colonelcy.
Returning to politics after the war, he was elected governor of New York then vice president, and finally the presidency. In 1912, failing to secure the Republican nomination, he organized the Progressive party and was its nominee, thereby cinching the defeat of T^ft. In 1916 he refused the nomination from this party and supported Hughes.
At the height of his public and political career, during the four years of the term for which he had been elected. Roosevelt accomplished achievements which historians will rank high in the international and industrial progress of the country. They included his influential negotiations which, conducted at Portsmouth, N. H., effected peace between Russia and Japan, maintenance of the Monroe Doctrine at a period when European Powers were interested in the affairs of Venezuela; the recognition of Panama as a Republic and his treaty with Panama by which the inter-oceanic canal through that country was put under way; and the settlement, through his moral influence in the face of a situation in which there was no adequate federal legislation, of the Pennsylvania coal mine strike. For his part in terminating the Russo-Japanese conflict he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1906. Four years later, once more a private citizen, he was Special Am
bassador from the United States at the funeral of King Edward VAI of England.
. When the war broke out in Europe Roosevelt became a strong advocate of preparedness and was bitterly assailed by the pro-German papers of the United States. When this country enterer! the way Roosevelt desired to organize a division and lead it against the Germans, but was not allowed to carry out his plan.
Roosevelt’s disappointment at not being allowed to go to France with an army division was, it may be stated on the authority of an American citizen who was in Berlin about that time, shared by Emperor Wilhelm of Germany. To this American the emperor is declared to have stated that the funniest thing that he could conjure in his imagination was the sight of Theodore Roosevelt wearing a gas mask.
Denied the privilege of fighting folios flag. Theodore Roosevelt’s interest was centerd on his. family's participation in th war. His four sons and his son-in-law, Dr. Derby, carried out a prediction made by the former president before the United States took up arms that if war came they would enter service. Theodore Jr.. became a major and Archibald a captain. t»oth in France; Quentin entered a French aviation squadron and was killed iu an air battle, and Dr. Derby the medical service, also both in France. Kermit, failing to pass a phys teal examination which would admit him to the United States army, received a confinission in the British array and was soon in Mesopotamia.
Roosevelt took keen pride in the service button he wore with its five stars. Talking with newspaper men some months after the boys had gone abroad, he told them privately that Theodore had written him that he had been in action and that a bullet had struck his trench helmet and glanced off; Theodore wrote home, his father said, that he regretted he had not been wounded just for the experience. At the time of this conversation, public announcement had just been made that ’’Archie” had been jumped in rank from second lieutenant to captain. Roosevelt confided with glee to his listeners that Archie” had led a raiding party out into No Man’s Land at night, and that the promotion had been won by gallantry under fire during this raid, i The Uoldgiel ‘disclosed further that j Kermit, fighting w-ith the Anglo-In-! dian forces, also had been under fire, 1 as the leader of “a troop of Whirling I Dervishes.” Indian cavalry.
Roosevelt after leaving the White House devoted his life largely to literary work, hunting and exploration. He became contributing editor to The Outlook in 1909, continuing this for five years and later held editorial positions with The Metropolitan and the Kansas City Star. From 1882 to 1917 he published about fifty volumes of works covering the wide range oV naval history, hunting, biography. the Rough Riders, Americanism, Nationalism, conservation of womanhood and childhood, animals, exploration, the world war and America’s participation in it. and his autobiography. His hunts for hib game and his zest for exploration took hint into the American West, the heart of Africa and the wilderness of Brazil.
