Teddy's Library to Be Kept In American History Section

Widener Library is now exhibiting a number of "Teddy" Roosevelt relics. The items on display are samples of the recently acquired Theodore Roosevelt Library, presented July, 1943 to Harvard University by the Roosevelt Memorial Association.

This collection consists of about 10,000 books and pamphlets, together with a large number of photographs and cartoons. It is to be added to the American History section of Widener.

Among the articles of interest being shown now are the speech notes and spectacle case which deflected an assassin's bullet during his campaign for a third term.
