The success of the Theodore Roosevelt Center depends largely on the financial support of individuals. Gifts of any size make a lasting impact to ensure the continued development of the digital library, publications and symposia, and all the other work of the Center. Contributions also enhance Roosevelt studies and scholarship and support cultural and heritage tourism in western North Dakota.
The Theodore Roosevelt Center has initiated partnerships with the Library of Congress, Harvard College Library, and the National Park Service, to create the most comprehensive and accessible collection of Roosevelt documents available anywhere. More than 165,000 items from these Roosevelt collections have already been digitized, to be made freely available online. With the expertise of history and library professionals, and the contributions of volunteers and interns around the country, the Center is reviewing and cataloging these items, including letters to and from Roosevelt, photographs, cartoons, newspaper articles, and other materials from many repositories. Just a modest percentage of the digitized items are now accessible in the digital library, with new items being added weekly.
Your gift to the Theodore Roosevelt Center will accelerate the process of making these items available to the public and allow the acquisition of additional materials from these collections and others.
