About this title:

Synopsis: Dust jacket notes: "Henry Adams once remarked that Theodore Roosevelt thrived on 'at least one fight a week' during his presidency. Roosevelt's talent for endowing the commonplace with moral conviction and bellicose emotion could transform a relatively minor incident into a controversy that in time became a cause celebre. These essays examine seven disputes which roosevelt created, fell into, or searched out during his years in the White House (1901-1909). Professor Willard B. Gatewood, Jr., surveys the opinions of contemporary Roosevelt-watchers and of historicans, and closely examines the President's celebrated combativeness. Three of the essays deal with Roosevelt's encounters with the so-called Negro problem; his dinner with Booker T. Washington in the White House; his closing of the Indianola, Mississippi, post office when the townspeople intimidated its Negro postmistress; and his appointment of a Negro as customs collector in Charleston, South Carolina. Another essay reveals Roosevelt's response to organized labor in government employment. Controversies over church-state relations are explored in two amusing essays. One examines the President's troubles with Maria Longworth Storer, an American ambassador's wife, whose machinations in pursuit of the cardinal's hat for Archbishop John Ireland appear in retrospect more comic than serious. The other is an account of Roosevelt's attempt to provide the nation with an artistic coinage and the public agitation which greeted the removal of 'In God We Trust' from the new coins. The final essay describes the dispute over the Secret Service in 1908-1909 and analyzes the role Roosevelt played in forming the agency that became the Federal Bureau of Investigation. These controversies supplied popular entertainment but also touched sensitive areas of American life...."
