A Great New Yorker

"At the dawn of another century, we recall Theodore Roosevelt's energetic life and populist legacy with admiration and affection. His twenty-four months as governor was a defining period, an impressive dress rehearsal of sorts, for one of the greatest presidents of all time." - Governor George E. Pataki from the 1998 Executive Order establishing the Temporary Commission to Commemorate the Centennial of the Governorship of Theodore Roosevelt.

Theodore Roosevelt is not only one of the nation's most famous public figures, but he is also one of New York's most celebrated native sons. In 1881, at age 23, he was the youngest man elected to the State Assembly. He also served as Governor (1898-1900) with distinction, promoting efficiency and honesty in government and fairness in society:
· He improved conditions for workers.
· He expanded the state's conservation program.
· He reorganized state and local civil service systems.
· He advanced canal system improvements.
· He enacted numerous reform measures, including election law, banking law, law enforcement, insurance, education, transportation and the regulation of corporations.
