Pres. Garfield: Radical to Unifier: Interview with author, CW Goodyear
The Not Old Better Show, Smithsonian Associates Interview Series
Welcome to The Not Old Better Show, Smithsonian Associates on radio and podcast. I’m Paul Vogelzang, and we have a fantastic interview and subject today with our guest, historian, author, and Smithsonian Associate, CW Goodyear, whom I’ll introduce in just a moment.
But quickly, if you missed any episodes, last week was our 726th episode when we spoke with Joe Lindsey has written his latest piece, entitled UGH. I’M IN THE CAR AGAIN. The Best Bike Is One That Gets You Out of Your Car, from Bicycling Magazine. Two weeks ago, I spoke with author Smithsonian Associate Craig Nelson, who’s written the new book, ‘V Is For Victory.’ Craig Nelson shares with us how FDR’s skillful leadership turned a nation wary of war into an arsenal of democracy ready to take on the dangers of another world war. Excellent subjects for our Not Old Better Show audience. If you missed those shows,

Our guest, CW Goodyear will shine a spotlight on a forgotten president and progressive statesman who tried both to improve an America in political and cultural flux and keep it intact throughout a contentious time. CW Goodyear will be appearing at Smithsonian Associates coming up, and the title of his presentation there is Rediscovering James Garfield: From Radical to Unifier. Please check out our website or Smithsonian Associates website for more details. Far from simply being a president who was assassinated weeks after taking office, James Garfield might be the most accomplished American statesman of the 19th century, says author C.W. Goodyear. Drawing on his new book, President Garfield: From Radical to Unifier, Goodyear offers a portrait of a man born in a log cabin who, by his twenties, had become a respected preacher, state senator, and college president. Soon Garfield was the youngest general fighting for the Union, and before the Civil War’s end, was its youngest congressman—as well as one of its most forward-looking, but the country, is still learning about Pres. James Garfield
