Q #7: In what year did Seton become a US citizen?
A: In 1930 the paperwork finally went through the entire process with the US immigration office. He had unsuccessfully started the application at least twice. He was a British citizen until that time. In 1915, Theodore Roosevelt was very surprised to find out he wasn’t a US citizen. The issue was one of the stated reasons that he was released from the BSA that year.
