Longworth, Alice Lee Roosevelt
Alice Lee Roosevelt Longworth, 1884–1980, American socialite, b. New York City. The only child of Theodore Roosevelt and his first wife, Alice Hathaway Lee, she was a teenager when her father assumed the presidency, and she enlivened the White House with her charm, irreverence, and rambunctious independence. In 1906 she married Representative Nicholas Longworth in a White House ceremony. For many decades she was a famous Washington hostess, noted for her knowledge of all things political, her outspoken opinions and often caustic wit, and her influence as a powerbroker.
See her autobiography (1933); M. Teague, ed., Mrs. L: Talks with Alice Roosevelt Longworth (1981); biographies by J. Brough (1975), H. Teichmann (1979), C. Felsenthal (1988), and S. A. Cordery (2007).

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

- Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
- In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
