1 to 44: The Best and the Worst of American Presidents (Ranking the Presidents)

February 25 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

2018 Presidential Lecture Series
Presidential historian and former Dole Institute director Richard Norton Smith returns for a deep dive into presidential rankings and what they can teach us. Smith will guide the audience through an examination of the executive office from the exalted to the ignoble, with his participation in the annual C-SPAN Presidential Historians Survey serving as a backdrop. How do time and history shape our viewpoints of a president’s success or failure? A ranking is only the beginning of the story.

Part One: Ranking the Presidents

Smith introduces the series by examining the multiple factors that cause ratings to fluctuate like the Kansas weather in April.
