Historical Re-enactor Darrel Draper will portray Theodore Roosevelt in a unique educational and entertaining program. Our 26th President of the United States and better known as “Teddy”, he was famous for his energetic personality and “cowboy” image. Roosevelt’s achievements as a naturalist, explorer, hunter, author, and soldier are as much a part of his fame as the many political offices he held. Draper, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Roosevelt, has been described by audience members as “an awesome and absolutely wonderful performer” who is able to transport listeners back in time to the era of his characters. His humor and knowledge of history have delighted audiences aged 8 to 80, explaining why he is one of the most requested speakers in the Nebraska Humanities Council’s Speakers Bureau Program.
