About Ethel Carow Derby (Roosevelt)

Ethel Carow Roosevelt Derby (1891-1977) was the daughter of Theodore and Edith Kermit Roosevelt. Pragmatic and compassionate even as a girl, Ethel graduated from Washington’s Cathedral School for Girls in 1906, and made her debut in the White House two years later. As First Daughter, she was much more private than her older half-sister, Alice. Ethel married Harvard and Columbia-educated surgeon Richard “Dick” Derby at age 22 in 1913. They lived in Oyster Bay with their children, Richard, Sara Alden, Judith, and Edith.
