[Top: Friend Talks about Awesomness of Teddy Roosevelt; Bottom: Spend Two hours Telling Friend about Alice Roosevelt Longworth.]
First born child of TR; fantastically good looking. Known as rule breaker in a time when women were expected to conform: smoked in public, seen placing bets with a bookie, rode in cars with men, stayed out late partying, and had a pet snake named Emily Spinach.
Co-led the “Imperial Cruise” with William H. Taft. During the cruise she jumped into the pool fully clothed and coaxed a congressman into joining her. Press referred to the trip as “Alice in Plunder-Land”.
Notable Quotes: “He wants to be the bride at every wedding, the corpse at every funeral, and the baby at every christening” (regarding her Father)
“Senator McCarthy, you are not going to call me Alice. The trashman and the policeman on my block call me Alice, but you may not.”
‘ [I’m] the only “topless octogenarian” in Washington.’ (regarding her double mastectomy for breast cancer”

History Major Heraldic Beast might be my new favorite meme. It feels like home.
