  • John Eisenhower, Richard Nixon & Walter Cronkite Oral Histories: March 22 on C-SPAN Radio
    U.S. Navy

    On Saturday, March 22, C-SPAN Radio notes the 45th anniversary of the death of General and President Dwight Eisenhower with portions of oral histories from his son John Eisenhower, his vice president Richard Nixon, and journalist Walter Cronkite. Historian and author William Hitchcock from the Miller Center at University of Virginia assesses Eisenhower as a general and president, and describes his relationships with son John, Nixon, Cronkite and the press.

    These oral histories were conducted by independent producer George Colburn for a documentary series on Eisenhower’s military and political careers. They originally aired, along with other oral histories from this collection, on C-SPAN 3’s American History TV and are archived on its website. More »
