FT 010-Q Theodore Roosevelt, Renaissance Man
Professor Paul Vasquez, Department of Political Science, 9:45 TTh
America’s twenty-sixth president was a Renaissance man. In addition to being a political leader at the local, state and national level, he also pursued various other interests. In addition to being a crusading reformer in the political realm, he was also an author, a soldier, an environmentalist and amateur scientist, and an avid sportsman. In this class, we will consider Theodore Roosevelt, his many interests, and the degree to which he was simultaneously ahead of his times in some respects, while also being very typical of his era in other regards.
