“JFK: The Spirit of Cold War Liberalism” with Jason Duncan at GVSU

Hauenstein Center for Presidential Studies

Wednesday, December 4th, The Hauenstein Center for Presidential Studies of Grand Valley State University, presents a keynote address by author Jason Duncan, Chair of History Department and History Professor at Aquinas College.

John F. Kennedy is his topic from Duncan’s, just published book, JFK: The spirit of Cold War Liberalism.”

Fifty years after his death, John F. Kennedy’s legacy is often overshadowed by the shock of his assassination and the revelations concerning his private life. Kennedy governed at a time when political parties were less polarized, the economy was expanding, most Americans recognized the necessity of the Cold War, and trust in the government was at an all-time high. He met that moment in history by encouraging fellow citizens to use the power and wealth of the United States to achieve greatness at home, overseas, and even beyond the limits of the earth.

Everyone is invited to attend the free event, at the downtown campus of GVSU, in the Loosemore Auditorium, at 7 p.m.
