Other Title
Theodore Roosevelt attends his son Archie's wedding at Boston, 1917
On April 14, 1917, Archie Roosevelt marries Grace S. Lockwood at the Emmanuel Church in Boston, Massachusetts. Side view of TR entering an automobile with two women, the one following TR may be his wife Edith; TR doffs his hat as he faces camera; view of crowd outside the Emmanuel Church; and long shot of woman holding blanket up, perhaps to shield the bride's entrance into the church. Last two segments appear to be unrelated scenes: medium close shot of TR sitting in a car with an unidentified man and a close up of TR with a man in uniform, both scenes are outside in undetermined locations.
