Senator Patrick Leahy and Governor Jim Douglas talked about former President Calvin Coolidge’s “civil approach to politics,” and the need for more of his approach in contemporary political debate. President Coolidge’s great-grandson Christopher Jeter spoke about his family’s legacy. Alvin Felzenberg is the author of The Leaders We Deserved (and a Few We Didn’t): Rethinking the Presidential Rating Game.

This “Books & Beyond” event was held at the Library of Congress to launch a new book of essays asserting Coolidge’s lasting value for American life and poliitics, Why Coolidge Matters: How Civility in Politics Can Bring a Nation Together, published that day by the National Notary Association. It was the 87th anniversary of the swearing-in of President Coolidge as the 30th president of the United States and the nation’s only president to have been sworn into office by a notary public. Governor Douglas wrote the forward to the book. close
