David A. Nichols - Ike and McCarthy: Dwight Eisenhower's Secret Campaign Against Joseph McCarthy

Upcoming Event
Saturday, April 22, 2017 at 1:00 pm

While the public perception during Eisenhower’s administration was that the President was unwilling to interfere with Senator Joseph McCarthy and his hunt for American communists, in fact Eisenhower’s reticence was part of his strategy for bringing about McCarthy’s downfall. Nichols, a noted Eisenhower expert and the author of A Matter of Justice: Eisenhower and the Beginning of the Civil Rights Revolution, Eisenhower 1956, and others books, recounts that the President deeply disliked the Senator but, believing a direct confrontation could strengthen McCarthy’s position, conducted a clandestine campaign against him. Using previously unavailable and overlooked documents, Nichols traces how the White House weakened McCarthy, who was at last discredited after the televised hearings in 1954.
