Alice Lee Roosevelt was the oldest child of President Theodore Roosevelt. Her mother Alice Hathaway Lee Roosevelt died two days after the birth, and TR left the child in the care of his sisters until he remarried in 1886. Alice was a teenager when her father became President. She was high-spirited and witty and became a trendsetter for other young Americans -- Alice even became a popular baby name. In 1906, she married Nicholas Longworth, a member of Congress, in a much-publicized White House wedding, and became a leading Washington hostess and political activist. Alice's most famous saying was embroidered on a pillow in her home, "If you can't say something nice, come sit next to me."
