Professor Kevin Schultz talked about how liberals and conservatives in the 1960s were influenced by two friends from opposite ends of the political spectrum, conservative William Buckley and liberal Norman Mailer. Throughout the 1960s, both in public and in their writings, Mr. Buckley and Mr. Mailer debated America’s political affairs including the Vietnam War, Civil Rights, and the Cold War. Professor Shultz described their political differences and close relationship in his book, Buckley and Mailer: The Difficult Friendship That Shaped the Sixties.

He spoke at “Progressive/Conservative: A Common Ground Summit,” a day-long symposium at Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, Michigan. close
