Hoover Institution, Washington DC

The Hoover Institution hosted "Ike and Dutch: Mentor, Protege, & Common Sense" on Friday, May 20, 2016 from 12:00pm—2:00pm.

Gene Kopelson, author of Reagan's 1968 Dress Rehearsal: Ike, RFK, and Reagan's Emergence as a World Statesman and president of the New England Chapter of the Theodore Roosevelt Association, presented a section of his latest book highlighting never-before-heard audiotapes of Reagan, as a presidential candidate in the late 1960s, discussing world affairs and Ike. Following the presentation was a discussion with Lee Edwards, distinguished fellow in conservative thoughts at The Heritage Foundation, on the book's contents and the remarkable history that would shape Reagan's future run for the American presidency.

The Daily Wire states "Gene Kopelson, in his book Reagan's 1968 Dress Rehearsal: Ike, RFK, and Reagan's Emergence As a World Statesman thoroughly details the 1968 campaign and documents Reagan's evolution to the world statesman that Americans still love and admire to this day...Kopelson’s book is an absolute must-read.”
