Theodore Roosevelt Bank Check

30 Dec

Bank check, 6.5 x 2.75, filled out in another hand and signed by Roosevelt, payable to James L. Clark for $537, June 7, 1911. Also endorsed on the reverse by Clark. In fine condition, with two vertical folds (one vertical fold passing through a single letter of the signature) and expected cancellation holes.

Clark was distinguished explorer who worked at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, and was a close friend to Roosevelt. He had traveled to Africa in to 1908 photograph big game for Collier’s Weekly, producing the ‘first film to record African wildlife,’ and brought back exotic specimens for the president’s collection. Roosevelt first traveled to Africa in 1909 in his famous expedition sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution. A fine association with Roosevelt’s well-known enthusiasm for travel and exploration. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
