Volunteer Newsletter

The newsletter for volunteers at Sagamore Hill, called the Rough Writer (reporters in TR's White House press corps were sometimes called "Rough Writers") has been published monthly for several years. It includes news about volunteers and staff, details about improvements and changes at the site, updates regarding research and publications on TR and related areas, etc. Although this newsletter is aimed at those who volunteer or work at Sagamore Hill, the information contained in it may be useful to anyone with an interest in the Park.
