Richard Marschall and Theodore Roosevelt

The Theodore Roosevelt Center at Dickinson State University was built to study and analyze the life and legacy of the 26th President.

The university recently hired a cartoon archivist who will add to Roosevelt’s legacy, and he says it’s a position you can’t find anywhere else.

And that cartoon archivist?

To continue making this digital presidential library the most informative database, the university hired political archivist Rick Marschall. Political cartooning was in its heyday during Roosevelt’s era and Roosevelt was one of the most well-known presidents for political cartooning. These cartoons tell a bigger story than you might think.

That’s Right! They got the guy who wrote the book on Theodore Roosevelt and cartoons.
