I'm Theodore Roosevelt – also known as T.R., and to the public (but never to friends and intimates) as Teddy. I am the 26th President of the United States. A leader of the Republican Party and of the Progressive Party, I was a Governor of New York and a professional historian, naturalist, explorer, hunter, author, and soldier. I am most famous for my personality: my energy, my vast range of interests and achievements, my model of masculinity, and my "cowboy" image. Originating from a story from one of my hunting expeditions, teddy bears are named after me.
