History Alive! Theodore Roosevelt

This West Virginia Humanities Council “History Alive!” presentation celebrates 100 years of the National Park Service as Gene Worthington of Fayetteville portrays Theodore Roosevelt, the youngest president in our history. Often called “the conservation president,” Roosevelt pushed himself to overcome a sickly childhood and advocated a “life of strenuous endeavor.” He later established some of our most beloved national parks. “History Alive” presenters base their historical characterizations on carefully researched writings, speeches and biographies of the characters they portray, using their original words whenever possible.
