Posted on 3/5/2012
The Theodore Roosevelt Center at Dickinson State University reached a milestone in its collection last week. The collection has now reached 10,000 items which have been digitized and made available on its website, which was launched Nov. 14, 2011.
"The Theodore Roosevelt Digital Collection truly has something for everyone from K-12 teachers and students, scholars, reporters writing news items related to TR and interested citizens," said Sharon Kilzer, project manager of the Theodore Roosevelt Center. "More items are added each week, so visitors to the website are invited to check back often to see what's new."
The Theodore Roosevelt Digital Collection is the product of a collaboration by Dickinson State University with the Library of Congress, Harvard College Library and the National Park Service to bring together all of Theodore Roosevelt's documents into one place. To date, the collection includes: 6,260 letters, of which 4,358 are from Roosevelt himself; 1,211 photographs; 846 cartoons; 270 telegrams; 40 maps and 17 of Roosevelt's personal diaries. The Theodore Roosevelt Center continues to add new documents and collections weekly.
