InfoAlice Lee Roosevelt Longworth (February 12, 1884 – February 20, 1980) was the oldest child of Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th President of the United States, born of his first wife, Alice Hathaway Lee. She was Lee's only child.

Alice led an unconventional and controversial life. Despite her love for her legendary father, she proved to be almost nothing like him. Her shaky marriage with Ohio power representative Nicholas Longworth drew the attention of many in Washington. She spurned Christianity. She was alleged to be unfaithful in marriage, but, considering the roving eye of her husband Nicholas Longworth, it would not be surprising. She once considered accepting the offer to be "an honorary homosexual" in the late 1960s. She temporarily became a Democrat during the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, and proudly boasted in a 60 Minutes interview with Eric Sevareid broadcast February 17, 1974, that she was a "hedonist."
