      > which was chartered by an act of Congress in 1920 to preserve the memories
      > and ideals of Teddy Roosevelt. As the only member from San Diego County, I

      > rancher. His ranch, Elkhorn Ranch is part of the Theodore Roosevelt
      > National Park in North Dakota. The Elkhorn Cabin Site covers 218 acres.
      > However, an ajoining 6,600 acres that were part of the original ranch,
