Historical Note

The Roosevelt class was originally the major part of the Roosevelt Memorial Library, assembled 1920-1923 by the Roosevelt Memorial Association (since 1953, Theodore Roosevelt Association) and kept at Roosevelt House, the restored Theodore Roosevelt birthplace in New York City, until presented to Harvard University in 1943. Additional items added by gifts from the association, the Roosevelt family, and others, and by purchase.


Arranged in call number (i.e., shelf) order. For details see the Classification Scheme below. Organized into the following series:

Scope and Content

The writings, life, and times of Theodore Roosevelt, twenty-sixth president of the United States. For a digest of Roosevelt class contents see (HOLLIS:. 008177699) Theodore Roosevelt Collection: books, pamphlets, periodicals; also introductions to the published collection catalogs cited there.
Items cataloged or recataloged since 1970 (chiefly dating from the 1950s onward) for the Roosevelt class, a classified sequence of books, theses and dissertations, pamphlets, periodical articles (clippings or offprints), broadsides, scrapbooks, newsclippings, other printed ephemera, and archival files. This finding aid supplements the dictionary (author, title, subject) catalog and shelflist on cards published in 1970, and supersedes a computer-generated supplement published in 1986. Items recataloged from the original catalog are indicated by DCSL following the AAA record number. Current coverage is for items cataloged through May 2012. Pending the next finding aid update, consult the HOLLIS Catalog, which also lists the collection's books and more substantial pamphlets.
