The Life of Calvin Coolidge
In our age of Progressivism run amuck and unbridled, it has become commonplace among many Americans to yearn for the statesmen of the founding period, or perhaps to the century that followed. For such inspiration, it is rare for principled conservatives to look more recently, and perhaps justifiably so.
Yet one president does stand in a forgotten chapter of the early Twentieth Century as a principled model for our consideration. To foreshadow the highly anticipated biography by Amity Shlaes on Calvin Coolidge (to be published February 2013) we invite you to enjoy the second half of a stirring examination of Coolidge’s character and life by a cherished member of the George Wythe University faculty, Dr. Michael Platt. Read Part I here.
