Kick Back with a President Tonight!

You can take your pick of more than 45 presidential biographies to explore, thanks to a generous financial gift to the Library Foundation from an anonymous donor. The gift significantly expands the Library’s collection of presidential biographies.

Here’s a sample of what you'll find at “Washington: A Life” by Ron Chernow; “The Last Weeks of Abraham Lincoln” by David Johnson; “Country of Vast Designs” (James Polk) by Robert Merry; “American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House” by Jon Meacham; “Unfinished Life: John F Kennedy, 1917-1963” by Robert Dallek; and “Mr. Jefferson's Hammer: William Henry Harrison and the Origins of American Indian Policy” by Robert Owens.

Several other titles are from the American Presidents Series including: “Millard Fillmore” by Paul Finkelman; “Benjamin Harrison” by Charles W. Calhoun; “Martin Van Buren” by Edward Wilmer; and “Zachary Taylor” by John S.D. Eisenhower.
