TR Center officially launches the Theodore Roosevelt Digital Collection
The Theodore Roosevelt Center at Dickinson State University marked the official opening of the Theodore Roosevelt Digital Collection by launching its new website on Monday, November 14.
“The new web site will be a great source for original historical documents,” said Sharon Kilzer, project manager of the Theodore Roosevelt Center. “We are pleased and proud to be able to provide a window into Theodore Roosevelt’s world, for scholars and schoolchildren alike.”
The Theodore Roosevelt Digital Collection is the product of a collaboration by Dickinson State University with the Library of Congress, Harvard College Library and the National Park Service to bring together all of Theodore Roosevelt’s documents into one place. The collection opened with over 5,000 items from 10 different collections, including letters to and from Roosevelt, photographs, cartoons, newspaper articles and diary entries. The TR Center plans to add new documents weekly and many new collections over the coming year.
