The Theodore Roosevelt Center web site is in the midst of a move to a new server and software platform. Some parts of the site will be inoperable while we bring everything over. Please be patient with us while we complete this transition.

About Us

The Theodore Roosevelt Center is dedicated to preserving the legacy of America’s 26th president. The Center has undertaken the monumental task of creating a presidential digital library that will serve as a repository for all Roosevelt-related documents, photographs, and ephemera, providing instant access via the internet in a well-organized, comprehensible manner. The Center also hosts an annual Theodore Roosevelt Symposium as well as special Roosevelt-related events, promotes Roosevelt scholarship, and offers student internships.

Mission

The mission of the Theodore Roosevelt Center at Dickinson State University is to raise the profile of Theodore Roosevelt and to promote understanding of one of the most remarkable statesmen and intellectuals in American history. The Center is working to gather together and digitize copies of all Roosevelt-related items, thus making his legacy more readily accessible to scholars and schoolchildren, enthusiasts and interested citizens. In addition the Theodore Roosevelt Center hosts Roosevelt-related events of local, state, and national significance.  More »
