This issue of the Theodore Roosevelt Association Journal
is dedicated to the memory of Professor David H. Burton,
a frequent contributor and a member for many years of the
TRA Advisory Board, who passed away in October 2016. To
the editor of the TRA Journal, with whom he shared a strong
interest in the subject of TR and Anglo-American relations, Prof.
Burton was a longtime friend and a valuable mentor. During a
distinguished career as a scholar, Prof. Burton authored more
than twenty books, including Theodore Roosevelt: Confident
Imperialist (1968) and edited many others, including William
H. Taft: Essential Writings and Addresses (2009).
