Lindsay will present be the guest speaker at The Lunch & Learn program Thursday, July 25 at 12 noon at Visitors Center Auditorium — light lunch, first come/first served. The Man for the Moment: President Dwight Eisenhower, Post-war America, and the Looming Cold War. This talk will explore how President Dwight D. Eisenhower was the right man to lead the United States after the end of World War II. Chervinsky will explore how Eisenhower used his experiences, outlook, and leadership style to usher in a period of relative peace, economic expansion, and stability desperately needed after decades of economic turmoil and war. She will also share key behind-the-scenes stories and photos that reveal life in the Eisenhower White House. This talk is in conjunction with the White House Historical Association’s 2019 focus on President Eisenhower, including the Official White House Christmas Ornament honoring Eisenhower. The ornament is available for purchase in the Eisenhower Presidential Library’s gift shop or online at the ILikeIkeStore.com.
