E. O. ed thanks for joining the summer I'm doing well Scott good to be with you good to have you on the program I I want to start with them a little reset it I know we've talked about this before in the air but I don't think people can hear it enough because presidential libraries are not something that we've seen before in North Dakota this is the first there are a handful of them around the country but I think people your library in them that they think books but it's it's it's so much more so would you describe what a presidential library apparatus is I would be happy to Scott and first let me say happy thanksgiving to you to your family and everyone out there listening today happy thanksgiving I should begin as governor bergamot often does with gratitude AB gratitude for the opportunity to speak with you here today about such an important project to North Dakota still a presidential library in a lot of cases is and has been since about nineteen forty the home of the archives of a president it is an opportunity for a president after he is out of office to shape his legacy to tell a story about the years that he had an office and that system didn't actually start Intel Franklin Roosevelt Herbert Hoover did eventually have a library but the first presidential library constructed was STR and there are thirteen official presidential libraries basically moving from Herbert Hoover forward to the now being constructed Obama presidential library but if he had or Roosevelt presidential library will not be like those presidential library one of the first major point of differentiation is that we don't have that President Roosevelt archives we are not a part of the National Archives system we will have a great actually Asian with them but we are not responsible for the presidential papers of Theodore Roosevelt that actually is an exciting opportunity most museums are eighty percent permanent exhibition space and twenty percent rotating exhibitions break we have the opportunity to flip that to invert it to make this library and experience something that you can come to and actually be immersed in the story BR Roosevelt's life obviously the badlands work critical point for theater Roosevelt I I like to call it the fulcrum of the hero's journey into yards incredible life he came to the badlands in eighteen eighty three first to hunt buffalo and then in eighteen eighty four he came back after the death of his wife and mother on the same day in the same house and he spent the larger part of two years in North Dakota as a rancher he had a cattle ranch and he was recovering he was thinking about the loss of his wife and his mother prior to that the loss of his father six years earlier so essentially some of his closest family was was all gone within a very short time in North Dakota allowed him to live with the land to live with nature to restore and recover to prove himself worthy of what he would later.
