Roosevelt Reading Room WORLD AROUND US "Rough Rider"

The World Around Us educational comic series devoted its' 21st issue to American Presidents...
..and while some Presidents received single-page treatments, both the Roosevelts got multi-page stories!
Here's Teddy's tale..
It's interesting to contrast this version with the other Teddy tale from Life Stories of American Presidents, noting what both stories cover and what each leaves out that the other version mentions!
Several artists contributed to this tale, including George Evans, Norman Nodel, and Gerald McCann.
But we're not sure who penciled and/or inked which pages.
The World Around Us editors were notorious for making extensive editorial changes in the name of historical accuracy, and if the original artist didn't have the time to do corrections, the editors would corral whoever was in the office to redraw art.
Tomorrow, World Around Us' bio of FDR...
