Century Memorial

Alfred Roosevelt, one of the younger members of the Club, was an honorable representative of the distinguished family so identified with the history and growth of this city. His life was full of promise, and even at his early age he had won a large measure of respect from all his acquaintance. His life met with a tragic termination when hope was in its prime.
