Theodore Roosevelt, Conservation, and the 1908 Governors' Conference by Leroy G. Dorsey

Among Theodore Roosevelt??s many initiatives, one of the most important accomplishments was his effort to convince the nation that conserving the environment was crucial to its continued existence. Years of national tours, presidential edicts, and policy wrangling culminated in an unprecedented conference of governors at the White House in 1908. Leroy G. Dorsey explores the rhetorical power of Roosevelt??s address at this historic conservation summit, specifically examining how the president popularized the notion of conservation in the public consciousness.

Much has been written on Roosevelt??s conservation policy, but surprisingly little attention has been given to this pivotal moment in the rhetorical rally on its behalf. This book fills an important void in the history of conservation for all who seek a deeper understanding of a president so identified as a champion of the environment.
