  The Roosevelt Library remains the premier research center in the world for study and research on the 32nd President of the United States. It contains more than 17-million pages of documents. The library is a critical historical resource and educational destination used by scholars, researchers and historians.

Historian Douglas Brinkley is a scholar, author, and sought-after news commentator. He is a professor of history and Baker Institute Fellow at Rice University and has written books on Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan. His new book is on FDR and why we are lucky enough to have him join us this morning.

The Chicago Tribune deemed him “America’s new past master,” and five of his books have been selected as New York Times “Notable Books of the Year.” His latest book, Cronkite, is just out in paperback.
