From Suffering to Success
Sprague Theobald - Dyslexic Emmy-Award-Winner's Courageous Story
In this interview for From Suffering to Success, Dr. Michael Hart talks to Sprague Theobald, a multiple Emmy-Award-winning filmmaker who struggled mightily in school and was not diagnosed with dyslexia until he was 30. Theobald’s story is one of courage, strength and tremendous persistence. He’s a great inspiration for all of us.

Sprague Theobald was awarded his second Emmy for the documentary “The Other Side of The Ice.” In the summer of 2009, a small crew, which included Theobald, his son and two step-children, took a 57′ trawler, Bagan, on a riveting journey north. The expedition traveled from Newport, RI, up through the Arctic’s infamous Northwest Passage and down through the Bering Sea. It concluded in Seattle, WA. By completing the 8,500 miles, five-month trip, Bagan became the first production powerboat in history to find and transit the Passage.
