NBC's Biographies in Sound



This October 27 marks the 163rd birthday of President Theodore Roosevelt. T.R. is a mass of contradictions. He was born sickly, but, through sheer force of will, built himself up to a big, bull moose of a man. He was a One Percenter deeply concerned with the plight of the poor. He was a native of Manhattan who went to Harvard, yet was passionate about the great outdoors and created the U.S. Forest Service which administers our National Parks. On this episode of “Biographies in Sound,” NBC radio interviews historians and contemporaries in order to gain insight into the man and his times.
