The Theodore Roosevelt Center at Dickinson State University is pleased to announce the Fourth Annual Symposium, Theodore Roosevelt: Family Man in the Arena, to be held October 15-17, 2009, on the DSU campus in Dickinson, ND, with a field trip to Roosevelt's Badlands and Medora, ND.
Theodore Roosevelt had one of the most visible families in American history. Unlike most Presidents, whose families are carefully sequestered from the American public, Roosevelt was content to make the whole family the story: a son's first deer kill, the wedding of Alice Roosevelt in the White House, another son's difficulties with football at Harvard, or a Shetland pony's ride up the White House elevator. This symposium will carefully examine the adventure and challenge of family life among the Roosevelts.
Featured speakers include Kathleen Dalton, author of Theodore Roosevelt: A Strenuous Life; Stacy Cordery, author of Alice Roosevelt Longworth: From White House Princess to Washington Power Broker; and Betty Boyd Caroli, author of The Roosevelt Women and America’s First Ladies.
