Roosevelt: The Story of An Animosity
Bainbridge Colby was actively identified with the candidacy of Theodore Roosevelt for the Republican nomination for President in 1912. He was one of the founders of the Progressive party in the same year, and later was the Progressive candidate for the United States Senate from New York. In 1916 he made the speech placing Roosevelt in nomination for the Presidency at the last convention of the Progressive party in Chicago. Under the Wilson war administration Mr. Colby served as a member of the United States Shipping Board (1917-1919) and of the American Mission to the Interallied Conference in Paris in November, 1917. He was appointed Secretary of State by President Wilson on Feb. 25, 1920, and held that position until the end of the Wilson Administration on March 4, 1921. On Mr. Wilson’s retirement, Mr. Colby became his law partner and continued in this relation until the year before Mr. Wilson’s death.
