dc.description.abstract Roosevelt was then Governor of New York. Chapman was one of the founders of the New York State Audubon Society in 1897. According to Chapman's autobiography, "the letter marks the beginning of an inspiring friendship. ... Although Mr. Roosevelt was a born bird-lover and had published not a little concerning birds, this, as far as I am aware, was his first definite (and certainly his first official) contribution to a cause which he later supported so effectively." Cf. Chapman, Autobiography of a birdlover, 1933, p. 180-181. en_US
