Selections From the Papers and Speeches of Warren G. Harding 1918-1923. The Twenty-Ninth President of the United States of America
|Author: ||Schlup, Leonard, and John H. Hepp IV|
This collection of documents, both personal and political, is an invaluable tool for better understanding and appreciating a president often condemned by historians as a poor leader and administrator.
“. . . Professors Schlup and Hepp demonstrate Harding’s presidency is worthy of a more balanced analysis. . . .This collection will provide the means to explore the Harding Presidency for years to come.” – Donald K. Pickens, Professor Emeritus of History, University of North Texas
“These writings present a man who is often overlooked by those preferring to dwell on his weaknesses. I think this book offers readers a much different perspective on an often misunderstood president.” – Gale E. Martin, Marion County Historical Society
“The editors. . . give us a concise and rich context before each letter, a kind of guide through the jungles of information. Although some of Harding’s letters were only a few sentences . . . the editors include how important each of them is to the political scheme.” – Bryan A. Craig, M.A., M.L.S., Interpreter, Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library
