Yarbrough, author of Theodore Roosevelt and the American Political Tradition (University Press of Kansas, 2014), says she spoke of “why, despite certain admirable policy stances, Theodore Roosevelt is not a reliable guide for present day conservatives.”

Yarbrough was invited by Yale’s William F. Buckley Program, whose mission is to promote intellectual and political diversity.
