Hayward on Reagan, to teachers
conducted a three hour or so seminar on Reagan with about ninety high school teachers a week ago. You can lsiten to it all, it is divided into two sections, each about an hour and a half; the first section is Reagan's life and work up to the presidency. I should say that many teachers told me after the event that they were struck by Steve's ability to get inside the subject (Reagan and his time) and to talk to us from the inside. I agree. It was a very fine talk, the kind that, unfortunately, most historians find very difficult to give. They always sound like they are talking about something, rather than of and in the thing. Not so with Steve, history at it's best. Much thanks to Steve.
