Kermit Roosevelt signed this typed letter to The Sportsman's managing editor Frank A. Eaton in 1929 about photo credits for pictures that he sent Eaton.
Typed letter signed "Kermit Roosevelt". 1 page, 7x10½, on stationery addressed from 11 Broadway, New York. Mounted to a 13¾x11 sheet of paper with black ink notations in unknown hand. Sept. 12, 1929. Addressed to Mr. Frank A. Eaton, New York City. In full: "Dear Mr. Eaton: When I gave you the pictures I remem-ber telling you about giving the credit to Suy-dam Cutting but I don't think I spoke to you about it again so I am writing this in case it has slip-ped your memory. I think the best way to handle it is just to make the annotation 'Illustrated from photographs by Suydam Cutting and Kermit Roose-velt'. Sincerely yours,". FRANK A. EATON was managing editor of The Sportsman at this time. He left The Sportsman in 1930 to become managing editor at Holiday. KERMIT ROOSEVELT (1889-1943, born in Oyster Bay, New York) was the third child and second son of Theodore Roosevelt. Educated at Groton and Harvard, Roosevelt was an engineer in Brazil (1910-1913) and a banker in Argentina and Chile (1913-1915). During this time, he accompanied his father on an expedition to the Amazon. During World War I, he served in the British Army from 1915 to 1917 and was awarded the Military Cross, War Cross and the Order of Danilo (Montenegro). He was commanding officer in the First U.S. Division on the Western Front (1917-1919). In World War II, Roosevelt was a Major in the British Army (1939-1941) and served in the U. S. Army (1942-1943). He died on active service in Alaska on June 4, 1943. Lightly toned and creased. Staple holes in upper left corner. Typewriting, but not signature, is lightly smeared in places, but legible. Adhesive on verso of letter ripples letter (does not touch signature). Folded twice and unfolded. Mounting paper has pinhole and light tears at top edge and light discolorations.
