FROM OUR ARCHIVES Flashback Teddy Roosevelt poses with a rhino he took down during one of the biggest trophy-hunting safaris ever mounted. T.R.'s Bully Shot Soon after leaving the U.S. Presidency in 1909, Theodore Roosevelt left for Africa. He'd pledged a "fine collection" of wildlife trophies to the Smith sonian Institution. Though his request for funding noted, "I am not in the least a game butcher," thousands of animals were killed on his expedition. T. R. described his conquests in the January 1911 GEOGRAPHIC, where this rhino photo ran. "While a rhinoceros's short suit is brains," he wrote, "his long suit is courage. He is a particularly exasperating creature to deal with." -Margaret G. Zackowitz FLASHBACK ARCHIVE Find past photos and send e-greetings, in Departments at ngm.com/africa.
