Theodore Roosevelt Symposium and TRA Annual Meeting

It’s an honor to be part of such a distinguished panel of speakers for the joint annual meeting of the Theodore Roosevelt Center and Theodore Roosevelt Association on September 22-26th. I will be presenting a lecture on Roosevelt’s working relationship with Buffalo Bill Cody, specifically their efforts to advance reclamation in the Big Horn Basin. This stems from my Ph.D. research, soon to be published by the University of Oklahoma Press. Other presenters include western writer Teresa Jordan, historian Duane Jundt, Gifford Pinchot biographer Char Miller, songwriter Hal Cannon, and folk musician Jessie Veeder. Click here for the schedule and registration! There will also be a field trip, but nothing as strenuous as hunting cougars with my great-great-grandfather and TR, pictured here in near Meeker, Colorado, in the winter of 1901!
