How John Kennedy and Ronald Reagan Changed Our Conception of the Presidency

Adlai Stevenson Center on Democracy
Drawing from his second book, Kennedy and Reagan: Why Their Legacies Endure, former journalist and United Press International bureau chief Scott Farris will speak on the presidencies of John Kennedy and Ronald Reagan (with a little help from Adlai Stevenson and Barry Goldwater). Scott has also served as a senior policy and communication advisor to U. S. Senator Malcolm Wallop, California Governor Gray Davis, and Portland, Oregon, Mayor Vera Katz. Scott ran for Congress himself in 1998 in Wyoming. He will sell and sign copies of Kennedy and Reagan as well as his first book, Almost President: The Men Who Lost the Race But Changed the Nation, which includes a chapter on Adlai II's historic 1952 and 1956 presidential campaigns.
