Author and Presidential Historian
Presidents and the National Parks: From Theodore Roosevelt to Barack Obama (2016/2017 Lectures)
Described by CNN as “a man who knows more about the presidency than just about any human being alive,” Brinkley will discuss how U.S. presidents have led the crusade to establish National Parks and National Wildlife Refuges. From Theodore Roosevelt, who set aside 234 million acres of Wild America; to Woodrow Wilson and the National Park System; John F. Kennedy campaigning for National Seashores; and Bill Clinton pulling off the Escalante National Monument – Brinkley will illuminate the backstory of America’s best idea.
