29 Oct

To honor the 157th anniversary of President Theodore Roosevelt’s birth (October 27th), the Arizona Historical Society is celebrating by sharing some TR-related ephemera from its collections. Click on the images below to view a slideshow and learn more!

The Historical Society in Tucson has been involved in several Roosevelt-related endeavors recently, including a summer digitization project in partnership with the Theodore Roosevelt Center at Dickinson State University. The Roosevelt Center’s Digital Library collaborated with the AZHS Library and Archives to curate and digitize over 1,000 pages of materials from the John and Isabella Greenway collections. Decades of correspondence between the Roosevelt and Greenway families and other important historical documents are now publicly available on the Roosevelt Center’s Digital Library website. To learn more about the digitization efforts undertaken by the Theodore Roosevelt Center and to view these newly digitized documents from the Arizona Historical Society’s collections, please visit: Theodore Roosevelt Center

Additionally, on November 10th, the statewide exhibit Above and Beyond: Arizona and the Medal of Honor will be opening to the public at the Arizona History Museum in Tucson. Exclusive to the exhibit in Tucson is a Roosevelt treasure that illustrates stunning connections between Theodore Roosevelt and the Medal of Honor.
