Meet Larry and Julia

Larry Marple began his living history career when one of his second-grade students told him he looked like Theodore Roosevelt. Since then Larry and his wife Julia have been traveling the country portraying President Roosevelt and his wife Edith Roosevelt.

The Marples have always shared a love for history – the couple met at a Civil War reenactment. And they have enjoyed fostering their passion for history over many hours of research on the Roosevelts. Edith’s inclusion in the Marple’s storytelling is unique and important as Edith was one of Teddy’s best political advisors.
