The Theodore Roosevelt Center, which organizes the annual event, now has 24,194 digitized items, including eight new letters the former president wrote to his second son, Kermit on a range of themes, including Roosevelt’s views on the presidency, football, and acting as a “vice-mother” to him when mother Edith Roosevelt was away.

 

DSU scholars surpass fundraising goals

The 69 students enrolled in DSU’s Theodore Roosevelt Honors Leadership Program have already raised nearly $1,000 for a Dickinson Backpack program. Students collected $150 in cash donations and raised another $800 from one fundraiser during the university’s Homecoming. Proceeds will go to the backpack program, which provides under-resourced students in Dickinson with backpacks stuffed with food items.
