Thursday, December 10, 2020 | The Resurrection of Richard Nixon–Our Elder Statesman | Virtual Event

The Hauenstein Center for Presidential Studies presents “The Resurrection of Richard Nixon–Our Elder Statesman.” In August 1974, Richard Nixon became the first and only president to resign from office. Nevertheless, within a decade of his resignation, Nixon found himself advising on campaign strategy, foreign policy, and U.S-Soviet summit meetings. He even represented the U.S at state funerals. Serving informally during the Reagan, Bush, and Clinton Administrations, Nixon became a valued elder statesman. Kasey S. Pipes, former advisor to President George W. Bush and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, joins us digitally to discuss his book After the Fall: The Remarkable Comeback of Richard Nixon. The time for this event is 7 p.m., and it takes place at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85918499467. The cost is free, but you must pre-register here. For more information, call (616) 331-2770 or visit https://www.gvsu.edu/hc/module-events-view.htm?siteModuleId=2C5125A7-B7A9-5FEB-4D1655B86DF0EF04&eventId=59756832-C7EA-7429-5CB800D1FDEEBAAF.
