Laton McCartney talked about his book The Teapot Dome Scandal, for which President Warren Harding’s administration was indicted for taking multiple bribes from the oil industry in exchange for preferential treatment.

He talked about why the scandal was far greater than people realized,

how Denver is connected to the scandal, why he became interested in the

subject, and why it’s still relevant today. After his remarks he responded

to questions from the audience.

Laton McCartney is the author of several books, including Friends in High Places: The Bechtel Story-The Most Secret Corporation and How it Engineered the World. close
