Commemorating the 40th anniversary of the June 17, 1972, Watergate break-in, historian and researcher Max Holland talked about his book, Leak: Why Mark Felt Became Deep Throat. In the book he critiques the view of FBI Associate Director Mark Felt presented by Bob Woodward. Using the Woodward and Bernstein papers at the University of Texas, Mr. Holland argues that contrary to popular notions, Mark Felt selfishly used journalists to discredit FBI director L. Patrick Gray in the hope that he would be appointed to the top spot; and that President Nixon’s resignation was an unintended consequence. Mr. Holland also compares the Woodward and Bernstein book All the President’s Men to their original reporting notes, and he argues that they changed key information. Mr. Holland used slides as he spoke and responded to questions from members of the audience at the Kansas City Central Library. close
