Dakota Datebook: Remembering Theodore Roosevelt
6:42 AM, 8:42 AM, 3:50 PM*, 5:44 PM, AND 7:50 PM* CT

Our 26th president, Theodore Roosevelt, was a lauded statesman, orator, and storyteller. He wrote more books than any other president and, indeed, more than most authors and intellectuals. To commemorate him and his North Dakota legacy, Roosevelt scholar and re-enactor Steve Stark has made selections from his speeches, books, and letters for a special Dakota Datebook series. Throughout 2019, listen for Dakota Datebook: Remembering Theodore Roosevelt in the regular Dakota Datebook time slots. Funding for this series is provided by the Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation.
