Alan Brinkley - Franklin Delano Roosevelt
All Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, December 24 and remain closed on Thursday, December 25 in observance of the Christmas holiday.
No president since the founders has done more to shape American government than Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
Alan Brinkley argues that Roosevelt’s presidency forever changed the face of international diplomacy, the American party system, and the government’s role in global and domestic policy.
Brinkley is one of just three American historians to have been Harmsworth Professor at Oxford and Pitt Professor of American history at Cambridge.
Co-presented with the Truman Library Institute; co-sponsored by KCUR’s UP to Date.
