Name: VIRTUAL Theodore Roosevelt Symposium
Date: September 17, 2020 - September 19, 2020
Event Description:
Although Theodore Roosevelt was one of the strongest and most charismatic of American presidents, he could not have accomplished all that he did without his circle of friends and advisers. For a leader who loved to hold forth, and who was never afraid to charge into the arena or fight for the right, Roosevelt was a surprisingly good and careful listener. He prized his circle of friends and advisers. Join us as we explore Roosevelt's relations with such friends as Leonard Wood, Booker T. Washington, and others.
