Steven Weisman moderated a discussion about former Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-NY). Mr. Weisman is the editor of the book Daniel Patrick Moynihan: A Portrait in Letters of an American Visionary (PublicAffairs, 2010). The book is a selection of correspondence that spans Senator Moynihan’s professional career, from his time as a Harvard professor, to his ambassadorships to India and the United Nations, and his tenure in the Senate (1977-2001). Daniel Patrick Moynihan died in 2003 and although a prolific writer, he never authored an autobiography. Senator Schumer (D-NY) made keynote remarks. The panelists also responded a question submitted from the audience. This discussion took place at the New York Academy of Medicine. It was sponsored by the Museum of the City of New York and co-sponsored by the American Irish Historical Society, the Glucksman Ireland House at New York University, and the Maxwell School at Syracuse University. close
