Doing What Needs to be Done: The Life of Theodore Roosevelt
Historian, Jim Gibbons, will present the life of our 26th President of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt on Saturday, February 3, 2018 at 2 p.m. As Cowboy and Cattle driver, Deputy Sheriff, City Police Commissioner, Assistant Secretary of the Navy, Rough Rider, and then Governor of New York, T.R. was moving up quickly! Roosevelt was later jockeyed into the mundane position of the Vice Presidency where Roosevelt could do no harm. Then suddenly, fate stepped in. President William McKinley is assassinated and Roosevelt now becomes President of the United States. Please call the Whiting Public Library at 659-0269 x110 to register for this free program.
