Lou Cannon, author of Ronald Reagan: Role of a Lifetime, continued his discussion of the Reagan presidency from the previous week. Mr. Cannon, now a reporter for the Washington Post, has followed President Reagan’s political career since Reagan’s governorship of California in the 1960's, and has written three books on the former president.

Mr. Cannon discussed his numerous interactions with the former president, who he described as being distant from his family and acquaintances. The book, Mr. Cannon said, was intended to record a contemporary impression of the Reagan presidency through interviews of acquaintances rather than a historical record. Mr. Cannon said he hoped the book would provide historians of the future a greater insight into the Reagan presidency than may be provided by the Reagan archives. close
