19 Sep Theodore Roosevelt Symposium
The 2022 Theodore Roosevelt Symposium kicked off Thursday, September 15th. The three-day event will explore the athletic world of athletics around the turn of the 20th Century and how modern sports subsequently developed.
NDUS Chancellor Mark Hagerott participated in the activities on Thursday evening, to include a reception and dinner with TR Center staff and scholars. “DSU truly has a gem with the TR Center and newly hired scholars. President Easton, the Dickinson community, along with the rest of the staff have done creative and transformative work building this center and recruiting world-class historians,” said Hagerott. “The entire state should be proud of the work going on in the city of Dickinson and on the DSU campus.”
The chancellor met with a leading Roosevelt scholar, now DSU distinguished Lowman Walton Endowed Chair of Theodore Roosevelt Studies, and the evening’s keynote speaker, Dr. Michael Patrick Cullinane, who has published several books on Roosevelt and his legacy. The Symposium continued through Saturday.
