The number of statesmen and diplomats from Long Island that have served the country is truly impressive. Root is one of the 11 Secretaries of State that can be found in the 21-page compilation of "Long Island Statesmen and Diplomats" that I have posted on my website spinzialongislandestates.com.

William Collins Whitney. the patriarch of all the Long Island Whitneys, said of Root: “I have had many lawyers who have told me what I cannot do; Mr. Root is the only lawyer who tells me how to do what I want to do.”
