Robert W. Merry - President McKinley: Architect of the American Century

Upcoming Event
Sunday, December 3, 2017 at 5:00 pm

While our 25th president may often be overshadowed by his perennially popular successor, Theodore Roosevelt, Merry argues that McKinley laid the foundations for achievements which Roosevelt was given credit for. McKinley was elected to two terms as president, serving from 1897 to 1901. During his tenure he expanded executive power and established the U.S. as an imperial force. Merry, editor of The National Interest and author of Country of Vast Designs and Where They Stand, an analysis of presidential rankings, details McKinley’s accomplishments, which included taking the country to a strict gold standard, driving Spain out of the Caribbean, acquiring Hawaii and the Philippines, forging the long-standing “special relationship” with Britain, and developing the doctrine of “fair trade.”
