Moses Wainer Dykaar, Mrs. Nicholas Longworth (Alice Lee Roosevelt), 1929, marble, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of David E. Dykaar, 1965.15.2
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.
