Title One Glorious Day
Description THIBD PLACE HISTORICAL ESSAY ONE GLORIOUS MY Dorothy Jacobs Buchanan 267 East 300 North Richfield, Utah 84701 Early in the month of October, 1986, I received a phone call from my daughter. Her opening sentence was startling: "Hello, Mother. How would you like to go to Dallas?" A sudden breathlessness prevented me from answering for a moment, but I managed to say, "For what reason?" She answered, "You have always been proud of having been born on Theodore Roosevelt's birthday on October 17th, and I just received a brochure fron a friend stating that the Theodore Roosevelt Association is planning to celebrate Theodore Roosevelt's birthday on the weekend of October in Dallas. It will be his 150th birthday and it will be your SJrd. You can celebrate them both." I did not venture to say, "I'll think it over." The thought was so appealing to me that I answered, "I'll go, gladly." We flew to Dallas for the weekend of October 27th. I can safely state that those were three days of undistilled joy and happiness which permeated our hearts so deeply that the memory will always remain with us, like acrylic painting-clear and unfading. We met kind and gracious people, and learned a great deal more about Theodore Roosevelt. 5rom the time that I first learned that I was born on Theodore Roosevelt's birthday, I was drawn to him. I followed the course of his life and respected and honored him for the nan he was and the vital role he played in our rising democracy. As he was President of the United States at the time of my birth in 1905, it wasn't long before I could follow his activities in the newspapers, and especially in the illustrated "Leslie's Weekly" magazine, which came to our home.
