History of U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt and the Batchellers
Roosevelt became President in September of 1901. Like all new Presidents he had the ability to select his own candidates for political positions.
At that time Batcheller had been President of the highest international court for two years. Although Roosevelt was almost a contemporary of their daughter Kate, he respected wisdom and power and kept Batcheller in Alexandria.
Roosevelt and the Batchellers shared tragedy. The Batchellers had lost two babies and both Roosevelt’s wife and mother died the same day.
In recognition of his being a sportsman, including an excellent horseman, The Roosevelt is decorated in horse wallpaper.
