  5. Conversations With History: Lessons from FDR’s New Deal

    Harry Kreisler welcomes Pulitzer Prize winning historian David M. Kennedy to discuss what can be learned from The Great Depression. Professor Kennedy analyzes the genius of Roosevelt’s leadership, the tragedy of Herbert Hoover, the relationship between FDR’s short term goals to deal with the economy and his long term goals to establish a new political coalition and create institutions to stabilize American capitalism and more equitably distribute its resources. Kennedy draws parallels with the current global economic crisis and the lessons that the Obama administration could learn from the New Deal.

  6. Truman’s Decision to Use the Atomic Bomb and Its Legacy

    To mark the 70th anniversary of President Truman’s decision to drop the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, in August of 1945—ending the war and ushering in the Nuclear Age—the Harry S Truman Center for Governmental Affairs at UMKC hosted Dr. Sam Walker on April 9, 2015 at the National Archives of Kansas City. Walker addressed a standing-room-only crowd, providing commentary on the options available to President Truman for ending the war in the Pacific Theater and, citing original sources, explained why Truman made the decision to utilize the bomb. Walker is a Distinguished Lecturer with the Organization of American Historians (2013-2016) and an awardee of the Richard W. Leopold Prize for the best book by a government historian, The Road to Yucca Mountain. He was historian for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, 1986-2010, and served as Adjunct Professor at Georgetown University, 1992. He has also written and edited numerous books and publications, among them, Prompt and Utter Destruction: Truman and the Use of Atomic Bombs against Japan.
