Roosevelt, Edith Kermit Carow, 1927, Biographical Sketch

A FEW MONTHS after graduating at Harvard, Roosevelt married Miss Alice Hathaway Lee, of Boston. The bride of his youth passed from life as her daughter—Mrs. Alice Roosevelt Longworth—entered it. Nearly three years afterward he sailed for London where he was married to Miss Edith Kermit Carow, a friend and neighbor of his childhood. As the wife of the President, Mrs. Roosevelt was called upon to act as hostess to a larger number and variety of guests than any other mistress of the White House, and so generously is she endowed with tad, that she is among the few in that trying position who have escaped criticism. Under her supervision, the White House was extensively remodeled.
