"This is in a corner of the lawn at the President's home. Our President is a descendant of Claes Martenzoon Van Rosevelt, who came to America in 1649. His father was of New York, his mother of Georgia. He was born in New York in 1858; graduated at Harvard University 1880; was member of New York State Assembly 1882-4; Chairman of the New York delegation to Republican National Convention in 1884; U.S. Civil Service commissioner, 1893-95; President of New York City Board of Police Commissioners, 1895-97; Assistant Secretary of the Navy, 1897-98; Lieut. Col. and Col. First Volunteer Cavalry (the 'Rough Riders'), 1898; Governor of New York State, 1899-1900; Vice-President of the United States, 1901; succeeded to the Presidency September 14, 1901; elected President with the largest plurality ever recorded in American history, 1904. Charles Warren Fairbanks comes of English stock. His British ancestor came to this country in 1636. He himself was born in Ohio in 1852, worked his way through college and law-school and was admitted to the bar in Cleveland, removing soon afterward to Indianapolis with which he has been identified all through his political career. In 1896 he headed the Indiana delegation in the St. Louis Convention and during the campaign that followed he spoke in nearly all the Northern States. William McKinley was his warm, personal friend. During his first term in the United States Senate he was made head of the Committee on Immigration and served on various others. President McKinley appointed him on the Joint High British-American Commission to adjust international questions with Great Britain. Indiana re-elected him to the Senate in 1903. The United States chose him for Vice-President in 1904. From Notes of Travel, No. 15, copyright, 1905, by Underwood & Underwood"--Printed on back of stereograph.
