Description:
Based on research in newspaper archives, this photograph was probably taken by Clyde M. Allam on August 2, 1901, when Theodore Roosevelt, then vice-president of the United States, gave a speech in Colorado Springs, Colorado on the occasion of the state's quartocentenary (25th anniversary of statehood). The building in the background is the Antlers Hotel. To Roosevelt's left is Colorado Governor James B. Orman. [See Colorado Transcript, August 7, 1901, Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection, Colorado State Library) Clyde Allam had previously lived in Ohio, and after Colorado moved to Woodland Avenue in the Bortondale section of Middletown Township, Delaware County, Pa. He was the father of Mark Allam (pictured in P-14013E and other images in the MHAC collection) and Robert Allam (who took a variety of photographs that are now in the MHAC collection, and who donated this and several other glass negatives made by his father).
