      On the coat tails of the Theodore Roosevelt Symposium at Dickinson
      State UNiversity, (DSU) from Sept 13-15, Edmund Morris, the Theodore
      Roosevelt biographer who wrote "The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt"
      and "Theodore Rex," will be the keynote speaker at dedication of the
      newly-purchased 5,200-acre Eberts ranch on Sept 15th which will be
      held at the Burning Hills Amphitheater in Medora, ND.

      DSU says the following on their web site:

      "On Saturday, September 15, prominent government officials and
      representatives of private conservation groups, including the Boone
      and Crockett Club, founded by Roosevelt in 1887, will commemorate the
      historic purchase of the 5,200-acre Eberts ranch by the U.S. Forest
      Service with a program at the Burning Hills Amphitheater in Medora,
      North Dakota.

      The national steering committee organizing this historic event,
      chaired by Lowell Baier, president of the Boone and Crocket Club, has
      purposely scheduled the dedication of Eberts Ranch to coincide with
      Dickinson State University's second Theodore Roosevelt symposium.
      Baier will speak about the historic significance of this land
      acquisition by the U.S. Forest Service when he addresses the
      symposium participants at the Friday evening dinner on the DSU
      campus. Edmund Morris, Pulitzer Prize winning author of The Rise of
      Theodore Roosevelt, will be the keynote speaker at the dedication
      ceremony.

      Individuals who attend the DSU Theodore Roosevelt Symposium will have
      the opportunity to participate in an historic event of national
      significance, an event that relates directly to Theodore Roosevelt
      and his legacy to the Dakotas. The field trip to Medora on Saturday
      has been reconfigured to include a trip to Eberts Ranch on the east
      bank of the Little Missouri River. Clay Jenkinson will speak at the
      ranch about the importance of Roosevelt's Elkhorn Ranch and its view
      shed. Those participants who do not wish to make the trip will be
      hosted at the Chateau de Mores as originally planned. Upon returning
      to Medora, the group will reconvene for the lunch program followed by
      the dedication ceremony at the Burning Hills Amphitheater."
