Eisenhower and Nixon had a twenty-year political and personal relationship despite differences in age and temperament. Their association helped to shape the nation’s political ideology, foreign policy, and domestic goals, from civil rights to the civilian space program. Author Jeffrey Frank discusses this relationship and provides a view of America during the Cold War. A book signing will follow the program.
Event begins at 12:00PM
