Dedication Exercises at the Unveiling Of Statue of Theodore Roosevelt

Portland, OR: Oregon Mail Advertising Corp. Nov 11, 1922. 13" x 9.5" unfolded, brown font on tan paper, uniquely folded with doors opening in the front. Inside is 9.5" x 4.5" black and white photo of TR as a Rough Rider upon his horse, folded across the middle. The statue was presented to the city of Portland by Dr. Henry Waldo Coe, a lifelong friend. Coe and Roosevelt met on the North Dakota plains in the 1880s when Coe was doctoring patients and Roosevelt was recuperating from the loss of his wife, decline of his health and a blistering loss of stature in the 1884 campaign. The bronze statue was designed by Alexander Proctor. Although President Warren Harding is identified on the program as being in attendance, it was actually Vice President Calvin Coolidge who attended the statue dedication in lieu of Harding. Fine minus a small wrinkle at one corner. Item #1484
