Theodore Roosevelt Tour of the Museum: TR and the Giant Sloth

On Exhibit posts

The restored Theodore Roosevelt Memorial is now open, and a self-guided tour—available as part of the Museum's Explorer app, or on our website—highlights exhibits around the Museum with a connection to TR, who was President from 1901 to 1909. In this post, the third in a series, we explore one of the tour's stops: the skin and dung of an extinct giant sloth, Mylodon darwinii, on display in the Hall of South American Peoples.

Rombauer, is featured in a wall of cookbooks, from ancient to modern. We recently spoke to John Becker, a great-grandson of Rombauer, who with others in his family still works to edit and develop the "all-purpose" cookbook.
