In addition to being a U.S. president, “Teddy” Theodore Roosevelt was a conservationist, a traveler and an outdoor enthusiast who lived during an incredible time in America’s history.
During the Los Alamos Historical Society’s lecture series, the community will be able to meet this key historical figure one-on-one. Randy Milligan will do a Chautauqua performance of Roosevelt at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Fuller Lodge.
His performance, titled, “Theodore Roosevelt-Rough Rider President,” will address the 1912 campaign when Roosevelt ran for the presidency under the banner of the progressive party, the Bull Moose Party.
Portraying Roosevelt seems to have almost become second nature for Milligan, who has portrayed the former president for 20 years. The character has stayed the same, but the script has gone through several changes.
The original script, “Goodbye to the West,” focused on the time Roosevelt lived on his Elkhom ranch in the Dakotas. It was a sad time in Roosevelt’s life, Milligan said, he had lost his mother and his wife and decided to escape out west.
