Alice Roosevelt (1884-1980)

Daughter of Alice and Theodore Roosevelt, Alice was the eldest Roosevelt child. Very popular with the American public, she was described as "rambunctious, independent, and irreverent." The Alice-Blue gown, a fashionable dress of the early 20th century, was made in her honor.

Fun Fact: Alice once described her father, Theodore Roosevelt, as a person who wanted to be "the bride at every wedding and the corpse at every funeral."

Next: Anna Roosevelt (1906-1975)
