Tweed Roosevelt, University Professor, the Chief Executive Officer and Past President of the Theodore Roosevelt Association, and the great-grandson of President Theodore Roosevelt, is a member of one of the oldest and most respected families in the United States.

During the Clinton Administration, Professor Roosevelt led successful efforts to award President Theodore Roosevelt the Congressional Medal of Honor posthumously and represented the family at the 2001 ceremony at which President Bill Clinton formally awarded the Medal, the United States government's highest military honor. Later, in 2002, during the George W. Bush administration, Roosevelt presented the award to the nation. It is now prominently displayed in the White House’s Roosevelt Room, adjacent to the Oval Office.

Professor Roosevelt has had a long career in finance and consulting, ending as Chairman of Roosevelt China Investments, which continues his commitment to promoting business growth in China by making direct investments there.

He is a University Professor at Long Island University and has taught at many institutions, including Columbia University's School of Business, Harvard University, Marshall University and other colleges and universities, and has lectured at numerous venues including Hutton House at Long Island University. He holds a B.A. from Harvard College, an M.B.A. from Columbia University, and a Doctorate of Humane Letters from Misericordia University.
