Following a videotaped interview with former President Jimmy Carter, Mr. Williams moderated a panel titled “Inside the White House” with several former White House aides who had served various administrations during the Vietnam War. President Carter spoke about how the war affected his presidency and the nation in the years following the conflict. Panelists addressed the impact of the war on policy making during their tenure in the White House and talked about their own personal experiences, managing foreign policy, and information management during the war.

“Vietnam and the Presidency” was the first national conference sponsored by all the presidential libraries, from Hoover to Clinton, and the National Archives. Leading historians, key policymakers of the era, and journalists who covered the war examined the antecedents of the war, presidential decision-making, public opinion, lessons learned, and the influence of the Vietnam experience on subsequent U.S. foreign policy. close
