Join the Oregon Historical Society and Wells Fargo for an evening of living history at a free public event as part of the 2019 Teddy Roosevelt Oregon Roadshow.

Joe Wiegand is regarded as our nation’s premier Theodore Roosevelt recreator. A political science graduate of The University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee, Joe was a Harry S. Truman Scholar and Thomas Watson Fellow in his college days. After a twenty-five year career in politics and public policy, Joe began to tour the country as Theodore Roosevelt.

In 2008, to celebrate Theodore Roosevelt’s 150th birthday, Joe, his wife, Jenny, daughter, Sam, and golden retriever, Faith, toured the 50 states. Their travels culminated with a performance in the East Room of the White House for President and Mrs. Bush on T.R.’s birthday. Joe continues to portray the Rough Rider President in presentations and theatre shows across the country.

The 2019 Teddy Roosevelt Oregon Roadshow will take place October 7 – 11. Full schedule of events coming soon!
