Theodore Roosevelt was an American statesman, politician, conservationist, naturalist, and writer. He served as:

  1. the 33rd governor of New York from 1899 to 1900
  2. the 25th vice president from March to September 1901
  3. the 26th president of the United States from 1901 to 1909

He does not have an Ordinary People Change the World book, but he appeared in an episode of Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum called I Am Theodore Roosevelt.

Met in 1865, he would be approximately 7 years old upon meeting the Riddles, and ~48 years old 41 years later in 1906.

He is voiced by Eamon Hansen.


His full name was Theodore Roosevelt Jr. named after his father Theodore Roosevelt Sr. who lived from 1831 to 1878.

He actually seemed to dislike the nickname "Teddy", and had a history of condemning people who called him that. He does not protest when Xavier calls him this though. Perhaps perplexed by how Xavier talks about his mustache.


He was married to Alice Lee in 1880 until she died in 1884, then Edith Carrow from 1886 until his death.

Eleanor Roosevelt is his niece and her husband FDR was Theodore's 5th cousin.


1865 stache compliment

He has brown hair, a mustache, and glasses.

Xavier actually compliments his mustache immediately upon meeting him in 1865, even though at less than eight years old, he probably would not have any facial hair since he would not have started puberty. A photograph of him at eleven years old showed him bare-lipped.

Teddy notably does not say anything when Xavier mentions this, but looks down and wiggles his lip. It's unclear whether or not he can actually see a mustache there like Xavier can.
