Six “Teddies” and one Mrs. Roosevelt to be featured in performances throughout the day, Wednesday, August 6.

(MEDORA, ND) – The actor James Whitmore portrayed Theodore Roosevelt in the play “Bully!” on Broadway. Actors Brian Keith, Tom Berenger, and Robin Williams have played TR in film. North Dakota humanities scholar Clay Jenkinson has rivaled his own Thomas Jefferson with his version of TR.

Medora, North Dakota, is one of the many places where an actor or re-enactor has been known to portray Teddy Roosevelt, so it is more than fitting that Medora and the Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation are playing host to the first ever “Gathering of TR’s”, a performance review and conference featuring six Theodore Roosevelts and one Edith Roosevelt, TR’s second wife and First Lady of the Nation. The gathering is slated for Wednesday, August 6, Mrs. Roosevelt’s 153rd birthday.
