National Geographic : 1963 Oct
I give a white-tie dinner on May 26, 1914, to honor Theodore Roosevelt before his National Geographic lecture about his South American explorations (below). He delivered his first report to the Society. From left, seated: Jules J. Jusserand, the French Ambassador; Colonel Roosevelt; myself; and Juan de Riafo, the Spanish Ambassador. Standing are men who served as Society Trustees: Frederick V. Coville, George Shiras, 3d, Adm. Robert E. Peary, Gen. A. W. Greely, and Gen. John M. Wilson. The former President eats in another setting: the wilds of Brazil, where he was first to explore the Rio da Duvida, or River of Doubt, now named the Theodore Roosevelt River.
