Theodore Roosevelt: A True American – “The Rise of the Rough Rider”
January 22, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm
American history professor and Library favorite Dr. William Gudelunas returns to present a 3-part lecture series on Theodore Roosevelt, considered by many to be one of our greatest presidents. Born a sickly child with debilitating asthma in 1858, Roosevelt overcame early challenges by embracing a strenuous lifestyle, and soon developed his well-known “cowboy” persona defined by varied interests and a robust masculinity. Roosevelt would go on to become a naturalist, historian, writer and military leader before becoming our nation’s youngest president. Join Dr. Gudelunas in an in-depth examination of the life and legacy of one of our country’s most colorful leaders.
