Robert Roosevelt is more commonly known today as the uncle of Teddy. However, he was a powerful and well-known man in his own right in the last decades of the 19th century. He was a strong believer in the acclimatization movement and, during his one term in Congress, introduced the bill that ultimately led to the creation of the U.S. Fish Commission.
