This Week in National Press Club History

November 16, 2009 | By Elizabeth Smith Brownstein |

Nov. 19, 1910: Former President Theodore Roosevelt stops by the National Press Club in the evening for what were then informal chats rather than formal head table talks, and talks about his recent game hunting safari in Africa.

This Week in National Press Club History is brought to you by the History Committee, which is dedicated to preserving, and revitalizing the Club’s history through displays, panel discussions and lectures, as well as interviewing members as part of the Club’s long-standing oral history project.

The History Committee meets at noon on the last Tuesday of the month. The next meeting is Tuesday, Nov. 17. For more information on upcoming History Committee-sponsored events, or to join the History Committee, contact Marc Wojno at .
