Luce Center Label

Alice Roosevelt was the eldest daughter of President Theodore Roosevelt. She was a wild teenager, smoking in public, traveling without a chaperone, and interrupting meetings, and her father once remarked, “I can be President of the United States, or I can control Alice. I cannot possibly do both.” She married Nicholas Longworth, representative from Cincinnati, in 1906, and was actively involved in politics.
