TR in San Franciso

Here is a New York Times article that talks about Theodore Roosevelt's visit to San Francisco in 1903. What made me go find this article is that I've been watching "Mega Diasters" on the History Channel - the one about the San Francisco Earthquake of 1906. TR stayed the Palace Hotel in 1903 and this building - supposedly earthquake-proof and fire-proof - was completely destroyed in this diaster.
