Nixon and Watergate

October 26, 2021 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

John Scott

3:30 – 5:00 pm, Tuesdays

Oct. 26 – Nov. 16 (4 weeks)

Richard Nixon is one of the most divisive politicians of the twentieth century. Elected in 1968 by one of the slimmest margins in American history, his administration had unparalleled success on the world stage reestablishing diplomatic relations with China, urging détente with the Soviet Union, and ending the Vietnam War. Nixon’s success should have been his legacy as he was reelected in 1972 by one of the biggest landslides in American history. However, one event few paid attention to at the time would shock the nation and bring down a presidency. What happened in Watergate, who was involved, and perhaps more importantly, why did it happen?

John Scott is a Lourdes University history alumnus who completed a research project on the Kennedys under the direction of Dr. Dwayne Beggs.
