Outreach-Theodore Roosevelt-Icon of the American Century

Theodore Roosevelt: Icon of the American Century

Theodore Roosevelt came into office unexpectedly in 1901, without the benefit of a national election. Yet, he was arguably one of the most important presidents in American history, and was certainly one of the most fascinating. The antics of this charismatic man and his family enthralled the nation, and led to a personal popularity that is hard to imagine for politicians today. This brief biography of Theodore Roosevelt explores the early experiences that shaped the man, and the impact of his presidency on the course of American and world history.
