    Was Andrew Mellon Really the Supply Sider That Conservatives Like to Believe?
    Andrew Mellon has long been the patron saint of supply side tax cutters. Their devotion is understandable. Not only did Mellon champion a series of dramatic tax cuts in the 1920s; he also justified them with a supply side argument, predicting that lower rates would yield additional revenue.

    Abraham Lincoln, the greatest of all American presidents, left us a vast legacy of writings, some of which are among the most famous in our history. Lincoln was a marvelous writerfrom the humblest letter to his great speeches, including his inaugural addresses, the Emancipation Proclamation, and the Gettysburg Address. His sentences were so memorably crafted that many resonate across the years. "Fourscore and seven years ago," begins the Gettysburg Address, "our fathers brought forth on this..."

    The American Presidency
    Archives of American Art Recollecting the Presidents An election year exhibition proudly hails the chiefs Back in the old days, when the political conventions still chose the Presidential candidates, Smithsonian curator Herbert Collins would cruise the littered aisles and floors, alert for relics to take home to immortality in the Smithsonian’s collections. Several generations of dedicated curators have gathered such objects for what is today the National Museum of American History’s political history collection. Here reside mementos of the Presidents of the United States beginning with George Washington. The Smithsonian’s Presidential connection also includes the immensely popular collection of gowns of the First Ladies, many worn at inaugural balls, which have themselves often been held in Smithsonian buildings. And it was former President John Quincy Adams, elected to the House of Representatives after his single term in the White House, who played a leading role in the creation of the Smithsonian in 1846. After the Smithsonian’s own inauguration, people wasted little time bringing Presidential items to the Institution. But the accumulation of relics has not always been evenly spread across those who served. In the case of some Presidents, like Washington and Lincoln, the collections are strong. On the other hand, Chester A. Arthur’s list includes a fishing reel, a cartoon and little else.

    #69-The Strange Coincidences of American Presidential Deaths in Office Part IX
    The last President to die in office after having been elected in a year ending in zero was President John F. Kennedy. He was elected in 1960 and served from January 1961 until his death by assassination in November 1963. Nixon had survived a difficult childhood when two of his siblings died from tuberculosis. And when he served as Vice President for eight years under President Eisenhower he was almost killed when his vehicle was attacked by a mob in Caracas, Venezuela during an official visit to that country. So, perhaps, the Republican candidate felt that if he could survive what he had already experienced there was little chance of him dying in office? Perhaps Kennedy felt that he was invincible and so, too, was the nation he led? Or, maybe, he believed that there simply was nothing he could do to change what was destined to be? This latter thought may be closer to the truth than the former. On at least one other occasion he was asked about assassination and how the President might protect against it. His response was that ultimately there was no defense against a fanatic who was willing to sacrifice himself to murder a President. President Kennedy had won the 1960 election from Vice President Nixon by the closest margin in American history up to that time. (The most recent election, 2000, has been closer.) There were very strong, substantiated claims of vote fraud in that election in the State of Illinois, specifically in Cook County, the County in which the Democratic Party stronghold of Chicago was located.

    It's 6:45 A.M., Monday, June 18, 2001. In a cool, darkened control room on Capitol Hill, C-SPAN technician Paul Munson watches the final few minutes of the 619th Booknotes interview. A graphic appears on the bottom of the screen beneath the image of the speaker: Edward Said, author of Reflections on Exile and Other Essays. Making Patriots. How did C-SPAN, so closely identified by the public with live coverage of the U.S. Congress, become this involved with nonfiction books and their authors? It's been an evolution, to be sure, but it began in 1986, when an invitation arrived from Warren Burger, recently retired as chief justice of the United States Supreme Court and supervising a task dear to his heart, the national celebration of the U.S. Constitution's bicentennial. Would I, he inquired, join a group of media executives forming an advisory committee for the national celebration? Interested, as much as anything, in an opportunity to observe the well-known chief justice up close, I agreed. In one of our sessions, Chief Justice Burger spoke to the group of the enormous odds that had faced the writers of the Constitution two hundred years earlier. "If you want to get a better understanding of what it was like for them, read this," he advised, handing us copies of Catherine Drinker Bowen's 1966 classic

    The Lincoln Legacy
    It has been said that the three most researched figures in all of human history are Jesus Christ, Napoleon Bonaparte, and Abraham Lincoln. When the Berlin Wall came down, when Chinese demonstrators faced tanks in Tiananmen Square, when civil rights leaders marched on Washington, D.C., the life of Abraham Lincoln was held up as an example to all who would suffer, fight and die for freedom.

    As our Founding Fathers worked to develop the framework of our Nation, Abigail Adams wrote to her husband: "I long to hear that you have declared an independency and by the way in the new Code of Laws which I suppose it will be necessary for you to make I desire you would Remember the Ladies, and be more generous and favorable to them than your ancestors." An early advocate of women's rights, a farm and financial manager, and the mother of an American President, John Quincy Adams, Abigail Adams is one of many American women who helped establish the strength and vitality of our Nation. During Women's History Month, we recognize the generations of American women whose important contributions continue to shape our Nation and enrich our society. Through vision, hard work, and determination, countless American women have broadened opportunities for themselves and for others at home, in the community, and in the workplace. In 1809, Mary Kies became the first woman to receive a U.S. patent. By developing a method of weaving straw with silk, she helped advance American industry and set an inspiring example for other American women. Her pioneering efforts helped define our country's entrepreneurial spirit and paved the way for future generations of women to take pride in their talents and creativity.

    The 1992 Presidential Election (13/16)
    Previous Page Next Page As the 1992 presidential election approached, Americans found themselves in a world transformed in ways almost unimaginable four years earlier. The familiar landmarks of the Cold War from the Berlin Wall to intercontinental missiles and bombers on constant high alert were gone. Eastern Europe was independent, the Soviet Union had dissolved, Germany was united, Arabs and Israelis were engaged in direct negotiations, and the threat of nuclear conflict was greatly diminished. It was as though one great history volume had closed and another had opened. Yet at home, Americans were less sanguine and faced some deep and familiar problems. Once the celebrations and parades following the Gulf War ended, the United States found itself in its deepest recession since the early 1980s. Many of the job losses were occurring among white-collar workers in middle management positions, not solely among blue-collar workers in the manufacturing sector who had been hit hardest in earlier years. Even when the economy began recovering in 1992, its growth was virtually imperceptible until late in the year, and many regions of the country remained mired in recession. Moreover, the federal deficit continued to mount, propelled most strikingly by rising expenditures for health care. Many Americans exhibited profound pessimism about their future, believing that their country was headed in the wrong direction.

    By the President of the United States of America
    A Proclamation African Americans have played central roles in some of the most triumphant and courageous moments in our Nation's history. During National African American History Month, we honor the rich heritage of African Americans and pay tribute to their many contributions to our Nation. As we celebrate this year's theme, "The Souls of Black Folk: Centennial Reflections," we remember the successes and challenges of our past. We also resolve to honor the achievements and legacy of these proud citizens by continuing to improve our society so that it fully lives up to our founding ideals. In 1915, Dr. Carter Godwin Woodson recognized the need for our country to gain a more complete and informed understanding of our past. He founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History and established the first Negro History Week to emphasize that "We have a wonderful history behind us . . . " Through the pioneering efforts of Dr. Woodson and the hard work of the Association, this observance officially became Black History Month in 1976.
