Although the library in the tower is overflowing by about 450 books currently stacked on tables and the floor, the wizard decided he should add The Collected Works of Theodore Roosevelt to these 450 to outfit the smaller library that will be in the second Student Mansion, the one smaller than Engelbrecht House. Many of you have walked past this smaller mansion without noticing it when you walked through the bell wall on your way down to Engelbrecht.
The second mansion is hidden behind the trees. It’s currently occupied by Daniel and Pattie, the couple who, with only 4 helpers, built the entire academy campus during the past 9 and 1/2 years. P and D are moving back to Oklahoma in November, so we’ve got to furnish this second mansion for ourselves now. Want to help?
Our man Teddy is a fascinating writer.
One reader of the series offers this advice:
“He believed in hard work to get things done and didn’t expect others to be the only ones to do it. His constitution and sense of adventure make for some interesting, entertaining and introspective reading. Rough Riders might be a good place to start, then read Letters to His Children followed by his Autobiography and work your way through the rest of his writings as you see fit. If you want to see the humor he embraced, read the Foolish Almanak and for a realistic look at people you should know about, his Hero Tales from American History will update you quite effectively.”
The kindle edition is a buck ninety-nine.
