Joe Wiegand is regarded as the nation’s premiere reprisor of Theodore Roosevelt. Joe is a political science graduate of Sewanee, The University of the South, in Sewanee, Tennessee, and a former graduate assistant at the Center for Governmental Studies at Northern Illinois University, in DeKalb, Illinois. Joe is a Harry S. Truman Scholar and a Thomas J. Watson, Jr. Fellow. Joe is a twenty-five year member of Rotary International and a member of the National Association for Interpretation. A former county commissioner in DeKalb County, Illinois, Joe & his family now reside in Manitou Springs, Colorado.
Prior to portraying Theodore Roosevelt, Joe had a twenty-five year stint in politics & public policy in his native Illinois, managing gubernatorial and presidential campaigns at the height of his political career. In 2008, Joe set out with his wife, Jenny, daughter, Sam, and golden retriever, Faith, on a fifty state tour celebrating TR’s sesquicentennial birthday and the centennial of TR’s final year in office. The highlight was a performance at the White House for President & Mrs. George W. Bush on TR’s 150th birthday.
Joe’s live performances have been featured at hundreds of historic places associated with TR’s life and legacy, including TR’s New York City Birthplace, his Buffalo New York Inaugural Site, and beloved Sagamore Hill in Oyster Bay, Long Island. Joe has been featured at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City and served as the body model for the new Roosevelt bronze sculpture in Roosevelt Memorial Hall at the museum. The Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the White House Historical Association, and the National Park Service attest that Joe’s Theodore Roosevelt is based on solid scholarship and delivered with Rooseveltian showmanship.
Today, Joe performs in all fifty states and internationally. He has been featured in film and television, most recently in “The Men Who Built America” on the History Channel, and in “National Parks Adventure,” an IMAX film about America’s National Parks in IMAX theaters throughout 2016. Joe’s TR Tour is sponsored, in part, by the Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation of Medora, North Dakota, and Joe is featured every summer in Medora, gateway to Theodore Roosevelt National Park.
