The article provides information on former U.S. President Theodore D. Roosevelt. In 1911, Roosevelt was elected to the State Senate of New York where he promptly made a name for himself by defying the Democratic Tammany Hall leaders who wanted to name their own candidate, William F. Sheehan. Roosevelt was diagnosed with poliomyelitis in 1921. In 1932, he was elected as president of the U.S. After Roosevelt's death in 1945, a set of four postage stamps was unveiled honoring the president.
