Roosevelt's friend Sir George Otto Trevelyan was born on this day in 1838. He was a historian and writer, civil servant, politician, and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster. Here is an excerpt of a letter in our #digitallibrary where #EdithWharton writes about her love of Trevelyan's books on the American Revolution. Roosevelt, too, often put Trevelyan's books on his favorites list.
