Eastern Connecticut State University Professor Thomas Balcerski taught a class on the relationship between two prominent mid-19th century politicians: James Buchanan, elected the nation’s 15th president in 1856, and William Rufus King, who served briefly as vice president under Buchanan’s predecessor, Franklin Pierce. Both men were lifelong bachelors and Professor Balcerski explored the gossip of the time that the two close confidants might have been more than friends -- an notion that persists to this day. Eastern Connecticut State University provided this video. close
