It depends on what you are looking for but James Foote is a TR interpretive actor who is a TR scholar in his own right and is highly regarded as a speaker (see NY Times, late August 2008).  Tweed Roosevelt, a TR great-grandson is well versed in TR and conservation.  Dr. Natalie Naylor and myself, both of Hofstra University, have also spoken on a number of occasions on TR regarding everything from race and gender issues to conservation.  You may also wish to contact the Theodore Roosevelt Association in Oyster Bay.  Their website is www.theodoreroosevelt.org, James Bruns is the president.  I hope this is of some help.    

All the best, 
John Staudt

Subject: Speaker: Teddy Roosevelt, Sagamore Hill

Does anyone have any potential speakers to suggest re Theodore Roosevelt
and Sagarmore Hill, in Oyster Bay.  I have contacted NPS interpretive
staff there, but am looking for historian resources outside the NPS as
well.  This is a third party request for the NYS Bar Association, which
is seeking a speaker re Roosevelt/Sagamore Hill for a late September
meeting, in NYC I believe.

State Archives



Postmark date of application: January 15, 2009. 

The Archives Partnership Trust and the New York State Archives announce
the availability of awards to support research using state government
records held by the Archives.  The Larry J. Hackman Research Residency
program is intended to encourage product-related research in such areas

research-related expenses such as travel, lodging, meals, and copying of
records. Award amounts have ranged from $100 to $4,500. 

Academic and public historians, graduate students, independent
researchers and writers, and primary and secondary school teachers are
encouraged to apply.  Projects involving alternative uses of the State
Archives, such as background research for multimedia projects, exhibits,
documentary films, and historical novels, are eligible. The topic or
area of study must draw, at least in part, on the holdings of the New
York State Archives. 

Information on the 2009 Larry J. Hackman Research Residency Program and
