The Sights and Sounds of Theodore Roosevelt

Theodore Roosevelt had the unique good fortune of being president during the infancy of sound recording and silent motion pictures. He utilized the media to its fullest. Many silent films and recordings of Theodore were created, thanks to Thomas Alva Edison and his inventions, the motion picture camera and the wax cylinder method of sound recording.
