The Class of ’74: Congress after Watergate

Event Category:

April 4, 2018 @ 12:00 am

In November 1974, following the historic Watergate scandal, Americans voiced their displeasure with the GOP by electing a wave of 76 Democratic freshmen to the U.S. House of Representatives. Commonly referred to as “Watergate Babies,” some characterized them as idealistic and naïve, while others point to their work championing unprecedented reforms in Washington. Author John Lawrence joins KU Professor Burdett Loomis for a conversation on the complex politics that emerged in the wake of Watergate. This program includes a book sale and signing.
