Selected Bibliography of His Works

On January 2, 1899, Governor Theodore Roosevelt presented his annual message to the New York State Legislature. In that message he paid tribute to the New York State Library, an institution already 81 years old and at that time under the direction of the great librarian, Melvil Dewey. Roosevelt pointed out that the "New York State Library ... has more than doubled its efficiency within the past ten years and is an inspiration to intellectual life throughout the State. Through its local public libraries, its traveling libraries, its valuable photographic reproductions which are sent from school to school, and its other facilities for home education, it comes in direct contact with every class of the community."

Referring to the Library (as part of the University of the State of the New York) Roosevelt went on to say that "the State owes support to an organization which so guards and unites her most vital interests."

The State Library is happy to present this compilation of books by Roosevelt from its collections in memory of one of the greatest governors in the history of New York.

This bibliography was compiled in 1995, the year the New York State Library acquired the Lyall Squair collection of materials related to Theodore Roosevelt. To find additional material on or about Theodore Roosevelt, consult NYS Library Catalog.
