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 the 1960 presidential campaign, his thoughts on Nixon’s performance in the first televised presidential debate, and the impact of Nixon’s failed 1962 California gubernatorial race.

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
