Library of Congress Blog: Taft/Butt

(Sigh). Why must the Library of Congress staffers so enjoy implying inappropriate relationships these days? The lives of these librarian bureaucrats must be abysmally boring. I have read a few articles about Butt, and this is a new take. I understand he was engaged to be married when Titanic sank. Both Taft and Roosevelt were quite impacted by his death. It was a time when manly men could have friendships with other manly men, without raising eyebrows. I find Butt's life story - like Taft's and Roosevelt's - rather fascinating.

More revisionist opinions to fit an agenda.
