Books are Enough

The Power of Free, Self-Selected Reading

Remember when VP Nixon helped end the steel strike? Neither does history.

In 1959 and 1960 Vice President Richard Nixon played a key role in ending a major steel strike. President Eisenhower used his vice president more (effectively) than any president before or since. This is just one example. This is lost to history. Nixon was one of the most successful presidents ever and the most powerful/successful vice president in history.

Below are two excerpts from the Chicago Tribune- January 5th, 1960. Enjoy reading some real history!
