    Description

    Theodore Roosevelt Signed 1906 Presidential Document A former New York City police commissioner, war hero and author, Theodore Roosevelt reluctantly accepted the offer to become William McKinley's Vice President. When McKinley was assassinated in 1901, Roosevelt became the youngest man (to date) ever to become President. He served two terms, won the Nobel Peace prize in 1905, and strengthened the executive branch through his progressive agenda and the sheer force of his personality. He is often remembered for his policy pronouncement, "Speak softly and carry a big stick." Roosevelt was the first President to visit a foreign country, Panama, in 1906. Here is a large Postmaster appointment measuring 19.5" x 15" signed by Roosevelt as President and George B. Cortelyou as Postmaster General. It appoints Charles Rockwell as Postmaster of Cloverdale, Indiana (a town about 50 miles southwest of Indianapolis). It is dated February 9, 1906. Fine condition, gold postal seal intact. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
