Funding match secured for TR library near Theodore Roosevelt NP

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's governor, Microsoft, a Walmart heir, and a Fargo media mogul are among the major financial backers of a proposed presidential library for Theodore Roosevelt in the state's western Badlands where he hunted, ranched and lived a cowboy life before becoming the 26th U.S. president, the library’s foundation announced Tuesday.


The North Dakota Legislature last year approved $50 million to operate the library, but specified it must be matched by $100 million in private money to build it and fund an ongoing project at nearby Dickinson State University to digitize tens of thousands of Roosevelt’s papers.
