This hand fan is made of paper and has a wood handle. One side has a color print of Theodore Roosevelt waving and reads, in part"The American's Creed/ I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the peple, for the people...I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag and to defend it against all enemies". On the reverse is an advertisment in black, "Roosevelt Savings Bank/ Gates Ave. at Broadway, Brooklyn, N.Y.../ Our Bank Sells Happiness and Security".
Gift of Bella C. Landauer
