Herbert Klein worked on every one of Richard Nixon’s election campaigns from 1946 to 1968 and was later appointed communications director of the executive branch from 1969 to 1973. He talked about how he met Richard Nixon, the impact of the Alger Hiss case and later the “Checkers” speech, and his memories from then Vice President Nixon’s 1959 trip to the Soviet Union.

This is a portion of the interview conducted by Timothy Naftali and David Greenberg on February 20, 2007, in San Diego, California, for the Nixon Presidential Materials Staff at the National Archives and Records Administration, soon to be part of the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum. close
