THEODORE ROOSEVELT. Partly Printed DS: "Theodore Roosevelt" as President, 1p, 19½x15. Washington, 1904 May 24.Countersigned: "Robert Shaw Oliver" as Acting Secretary of War. Appointment of William Fletcher as "Major, retired". ROBERT SHAWOLIVER served as Assistant Secretary of War from 1903-1913, longer than any other individual. During the absence of the Secretary of War, he served as Acting Secretary. Shaw most probably signed this document on May 24, 1904, but President Roosevelt probably signed it at another time. On May 24, 1904, President Roosevelt was in Groton, Massachusetts, speaking at Prize Day Exercises at The Groton School. He told the young men, in part: "Be practical as well as generous in your ideals. Keep your eyes on the stars, but remember to keep your feet on the ground." Ten months later, President Roosevelt's niece Eleanor married a 1900 Groton graduate, Franklin D. Roosevelt. Shaded. Soiled. Lightly stained in blank areas. Creased. Light folds.
