Teddy Birds -- March 11, 2019

Moving Picture World, 08-March-1919
Former president Theodore Roosevelt died at his family home, Sagamore Hill, near Oyster Bay, New York, on 06-January-1919.

I can't find much about CL Chester, but he produced a series of movies about nature with Outing Magazine.  The second edition was "Teddy Birds," about Theodore Roosevelt and his interest in conservation and nature.

The producers of The Fighting Roosevelts, a movie about TR and life before the presidency, changed its name to Our Teddy and did well with "The Famous Roosevelt Picture."

President Roosevelt's estate gave its share of the profits to various war charities.
