From the Metropolitan Club on H Street the guests will discuss the early years of the Cold War, world politics, and presidents from Woodrow Wilson to Richard Nixon through the life and writings of journalist and columnist Walter Lippmann. 

The Metropolitan Club was chosen as a site for the program because Walter Lippmann was a member, its location approximately two blocks from the White House, and its relevancy as a club whose members are predominantly from the professional ranks of the government, military, and private sectors. This is the first time the Club has opened its doors to cameras in its 139-year history. 

The emphasis is on Lippmann (1889-1974) and the influence his writings had, especially his newspaper column “Today and Tomorrow,” on the American public for over 60 years and including his access to and involvement with many of the presidents, politicians, and powerbrokers he covered from World War I through Vietnam. close
