Schemel Forum Course - Dwight David Eisenhower and the American Century

Monday, 23 September, 2019

Rated a mediocre leader by many when he left office in January 1961, Eisenhower has risen in the ranks of presidential historians and political scientists as one of America's great presidents. This course will examine his life and career beginning with his youth in Abilene, Kansas, moving to his military career in World War 2 and then on to the White House as the first GOP President in twenty years.  In that role he attempted to forge a middle path in domestic politics while leading the West during the early period of the Cold War. We will conclude with a discussion of Ike's historical legacy and its significance to our world today.
