Event Details

The Hauenstein Center teams up with the National Endowment for the Humanities and World Affairs Councils of America to present a national forum on Michigan’s most famous senator, Arthur Vandenberg. The Grand Rapids native was a prinicipled Republican who knew how to work with leading Democrats – including Presidents Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman – to forge a bipartisan foreign policy in the 1940s and 1950s. Renowned historians Richard Norton Smith, H.W. Brands, Kiron Skinner and others will join with Vandenberg biographer Hank Meijer and Hauenstein Center Director Gleaves Whitney to explore the lessons of Vandenberg’s statesmanship for our times. The event is open to public in West Michigan, and will also be webstreamed live to some 100 World Affairs Councils across the U.S.
