Happy Halloween from the Roosevelts

Jump to Comments

In a newly-acquired photograph album that belonged to the family of Theodore Roosevelt, we discovered this delightful, undated, image of a Roosevelt family jack-o-lantern, sitting on the porch at Sagamore Hill.

The pumpkin seems to be sporting not only a pince-nez, but also a handsome mustache, suggesting that perhaps it’s in costume.
