President Roosevelt had a personal telegrapher

In an era before instantaneous global communication, the telegraph allowed President Franklin Roosevelt to receive vital information and conduct critical government business while away from the White House. This portable telegraph and vibroplex key were used by Dr. E. Stuart Davis, communications aide and personnal telegrapher during President Roosevelt’s travels. 1

The portable telegraph and Vibroplex key used by Dr. Davis are part of a display of presidential memorabilia in The Hall of Presidents at Walt Disney World.
