Theodore Roosevelt

Yale University Press

In the fall of 1873, Theodore Roosevelt began to study under Arthur Hamilton Cutler, later founder of the Cutler School for Boys, who devised a crash course to prepare Teedie for Harvard College's entrance requirements. Teedie took the Harvard entrance exams in the spring of 1876 and graduated in 1880. This chapter focuses on his education and academic life at Harvard, his exposure to neo-Lamarckianism, and his encounter with racialism. It also examines how Teedie developed an interest in politics and public service, his detestation of New York Senator Roscoe Conkling, and Rutherford B. Hayes's victory in the fiercely contested 1876 presidential election.
