The Man for the Moment: President Dwight Eisenhower, Post-war America, and the Looming Cold War

This talk will explore how President Dwight D. Eisenhower was the right man to lead the United States after the end of World War II. Lindsay Chervinsky will explore how Eisenhower used his experiences, outlook, and leadership style to usher in a period of relative peace, economic expansion, and stability desperately needed after decades of economic turmoil and war. She will also share key behind-the-scenes stories and photos that reveal life in the Eisenhower White House.

Chervinsky is a White House Historian at the White House Historical Association. Previously, she received her Ph.D. from the University of California, Davis and held a postdoctoral fellowship at the Center for Presidential History at Southern Methodist University. Her book,The Cabinet: George Washington and the Creation of an American Institution, will be out in Spring 2020.
