Exceedingly rare original daily official program from August 31, 1904, for the Olympic Games held as part of the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair, eight pages, 6 x 8.5, depicting President Theodore Roosevelt on the front cover as honorary president of the Games. Listed inside are track and field events, weightlifting, and the "International Tug-of-War." All event listings have been annotated in pencil with the winners' numbers and statistics. In very good condition, with creasing, a few small edge tears, some splitting at the spine, some soiling to the reverse, and a misplaced binding staple.
