Port: Teddy Roosevelt and the modern Bildersturm

MINOT, N.D. — When it comes to Catholicism, I don't have a dog in the hunt. I was raised a Lutheran but left the church and spirituality behind in adulthood. And some of the uglier elements of Catholicism's legacy, from the mass graves at boarding schools to the Magdalene laundries in Ireland , are atrocious.

'Bully! Bully!': Teddy Roosevelt visits Roosevelt Row

Roosevelt Row features watering holes such as The Theodore with its lineup of craft beers and the Rough Rider Restaurant, an underground nightspot in the Ten-O-One Building that highlights 19th-century inspired cocktails. The only thing missing, it seems, from the street named for our 26th president (1901-1909) is Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt himself.

Opinion: What would Teddy Roosevelt have to say?

A plush, stuffed bear got its name from him, but Teddy Roosevelt was no softy to be toyed with when he wanted to get something done.

President Teddy Roosevelt’s 1904 Colorado Bear Hunt, According to His Guide

Editor’s Note: In the spring of 1904, President Theodore Roosevelt traveled by train to hunt bears and big cats in Colorado. The account of his hunt was published in the July, August, and September 1905 issues of Outdoor Life. The original story, simply titled “The President’s Bear Hunt,” began with an introduction by J.A. McGuire, the Colorado-based founder and editor-in-chief of Outdoor Life, who spoke at length with Roosevelt when he hunted Colorado as vice president and again on this trip. The story itself was written by one of TR’s guides, John Goff, who kept a diary during their weeks in camp. “[This] story is the only official account of the hunt furnished in any sportsman’s publication,” wrote McGuire. “Mr. Goff carried his own camera, from which several of the photographs here published were reproduced.” Goff’s original account spans dozens of pages and three issues; we have excerpted most of it below. This hunt occurred while unregulated predator hunting was taking place in much of the American West; for a history of how the president’s trophy hunts like this one turned into the hunting and conservation legacy he’s known for today, read about it here.

Before it was all over, they got their wish, but it didn’t make some Fresno folks very happy.
