“Theodore Roosevelt exhibited a greater influence on Arizona than perhaps any other president. He was the first sitting president to visit Arizona, employed an executive order to preserve the Grand Canyon, established a variety of wildlife refuges and reclamation projects, and enjoyed outdoor recreation in the area. This program will share Roosevelt’s widespread influence in Arizona, and also explore some stories of dubious accuracy that inevitably sprout from such a larger-than-life character.” (Excerpt taken from https://azhumanities.org/speakers-2019-2021-2) Presented by Lowell Observatory’s Kevin Schindler, Award-winning Educator/Writer.
