with Archer Ellwein
independent scholar and actor
Meet the vibrant 26th president of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt. Even Roosevelt’s critics admired the man who took on the corporate trusts, charged up San Juan Hill, defied the Party "bosses," built the Panama Canal, defined conservation and won a Nobel Peace Prize. Hear his views on conservation, agriculture, and democracy, all shaped by his Western experience. Portrayed by Ellwein, President Roosevelt talks of his experiences in Montana as a rancher and sportsman. Following his "press conference," the actor/historian comes out of character for further discussion.
