Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs

The division of Prints and Photographs at the Library of Congress contains thousands of photographs, fine and popular prints and drawings, posters, and architectural and engineering drawings. Many pertain to the lives of American presidents and their families.

The holdings regarding Theodore Roosevelt and his era are particularly rich in content. The Library of Congress is continually scanning new items from their P&P division for the Theodore Roosevelt Digital Library. Currently, users will find Roosevelt family photo albums, a stereograph collection with emphasis on Roosevelt's 1903 Western tour, Edward S. Curtis photographs of Sagamore Hill and the Roosevelt family, as well as a set of Puck cartoons ranging from 1885 to 1915. Puck was America's first successful humor magazine and contained many colorful cartoons, caricatures and political satire of the issues of the day. It was published from 1871 until 1918.

The TR Center is continually cataloging and making available materials from this collection as we receive them from the Library of Congress. Click here to view items from this collection in the digital library.
