EDITH ROOSEVELT was the second wife of THEODORE ROOSEVELT.   Childhood sweethearts, the two were separated for a number of years before resuming their romance and marrying.  In 1901, they entered the White House, which they quickly realized could not accommodate their large young family. They secured funding from Congress to extensively remodel, including construction of the new West Wing, which separated the private family quarters from the presidential offices for the first time.
