Theodore Roosevelt: Making the Modern American President

Our resident historian Dr. John Foster started his US Presidents of the 20th Century series last week with Theodore Roosevelt.

We’ve filmed and shared his talk for those who couldn’t join us that night.

Learn how Roosevelt’s morals affected his approach to war, conservation and philanthropy. Also, discover how Roosevelt’s innovations helped create the modern presidency.

If you enjoy Foster’s talk and want to learn more about Roosevelt, Foster recommends Theodore Rex by Edmund Morris and Theodore Roosevelt in the Badlands by Roger DiSilvestro.

Our series continues at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 21, with a focus on Woodrow Wilson. The talk is free to attend and open to all.

Other historical talks by Foster can be watched on our YouTube page, including:
