The Harding Affair
James David Robenalt is a partner at the law firm Thomas Hine LLP in Cleveland.
James David Robenalt talked about his book The Harding Affair: Love and Espionage During the Great War (Palgrave Macmillan (September 1, 2009). In his book he recounts the political and personal life of President Warren Harding, focusing on the then U.S. senator’s relationship with German sympathizer Carrie Phillips from 1905 to 1917. Mr. Robenalt provides new insight on the former president through previously unpublished love letters and journal entries. The correspondence consisted of eight hundred pages over a thirteen year between President Harding and Carrie Phillips, a woman who would be investigated by the U.S. government for her friendship with purported German spies. At this event Mr. Rosenblat began with background information about President Harding and his excellencies as a president which he argued are unfairly disparaged. Mr. Robenalt showed photographs throughout his presentation. Afterward he responded to questions from members of the audience.
