Mike Bullard talked about his book, Lioness of Idaho: Louise Shadduck and the Power of Polite, in which he tells the story of Idaho political activist Louis Shadduck. Shadduck grew up on a dairy farm in Coeur d’Alene and, with only a high school education, would go on to become a journalist, author and one of the most influential people in Idaho politics. She worked on the presidential campaign of Dwight Eisenhower in 1952 and would become Idaho’s first female Director of Commerce and Development. She also chaired the Idaho Republican campaign of Ronald Reagan in 1980. Louise Shadduck died in 2008 at the age of 93.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2013 LCV Cities Tour” in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, from November 4-7 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Time Warner Cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed.  close
