Theodore Roosevelt (Aired March 14, 1948)
Mr. President is a historical drama broadcast from 1947 to 1953. Aside from Edward Arnold the cast included Betty Lou Gerson as "Miss Sarah," the president's generic secretary. For Arnold this was a prestigious part, earning him the admiration of Harry Truman. He was a frequent guest at the White House, where Trueman referred to him as "Mr. President." Mr. President ran on the ABC Radio Network from June of 1947 until September of 1953 and starred Edward Arnold and Betty Lou Gerson. Each week, Arnold would play the part of a different President of the United States in historical dramas based on real events - some familiar, many little-known and largely untold. The unique aspect of the show was that the identity of the President being portrayed would not be revealed until the end of the program - a guessing game that often challenged the most fervent and knowledgeable students of American history.
