Summary expansion
Roosevelt had initially undertaken the journey as biological reconnaissance on behalf of the American Museum of Natural History in New York. However, upon reaching Rio de Janeiro, Mr. Lauro Muller and the Brazilian Telegraphic Commission persuaded him to join forces with Col. Rondon to explore the River of Doubt and the smaller Pineapple River and follow their course to the Madeira River. The expedition became known as the Roosevelt-Rondon Scientific Expedition
