Theodore Roosevelt Association Annual Meeting

 2018 TRA Annual Meeting

Theodore Roosevelt’s Public Presidency

This year’s TRA Gala Dinner weekend at the Harvard Club of New York City will celebrate TR as a master communicator addressing his various constituencies, including Capitol Hill and the public. At the Symposium, several experts will examine how Theodore Roosevelt, America’s greatest public relations president, essentially invented the application of public relations to the promotion of his ideals and his presidency. Two extremely knowledgeable Congressmen, then one of the greatest presidential strategists of our time, and finally a former presidential Communications Director and a professional journalist who is also a historian will explore this fascinating subject from different angles. At the Gala Dinner, talk show host Conan O’Brien, who trained at Harvard’s Lampoon and has studied TR closely, will focus on TR’s use of humor, on those who skewered him, and on what he thought about being skewered. Conan is certainly well positioned to entertain us.

This promises to be a very exciting event!
