Original photograph of Theodore Roosevelt, by C.M. Bell Photographic Company, signed October 13, 1904

Clifford Berryman was known for his realistic cartoon portraits that did not unkindly emphasize or exaggerate the physical traits of his subjects. Among his papers are hundreds of reference photographs of many of the famous people who appeared in his cartoons. President Roosevelt gave this photograph of himself to Berryman. It is signed, “To C. K. Berryman and the bear with regards of Theodore Roosevelt, October 13th, 1904.”
