IHI / AHM Speaker Series: “Ike and Dutch: Mentor, Protégé, and Common Sense”

October 22 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Speaker Spotlight – Reagan Historian and author Dr. Gene Kopelson

Reagan’s 1968 Dress Rehearsal: Ike, RFK, and Reagan’s Emergence as a World Statesman tells the inspiring, never-before-told history of Ronald Reagan’s first quest for the presidency in the late 1960s. Reagan’s goal was to prevent a Nixon first-ballot victory, and by the time of the 1968 GOP convention, more Republicans had voted for Reagan than for Nixon. Reagan historian and author Gene Kopelson reveals the brand new history that behind the scenes, Reagan had a hidden mentor on domestic politics and on world affairs: former President Dwight Eisenhower. And Reagan’s major public political foe in the 60s was Robert F. Kennedy. Kopelson’s book has received rave reviews from Secretary of State George Shultz, Attorney General Edwin Meese, numerous Reagan and Eisenhower historians, The Claremont Review of Books, The Washington Times, The Weekly Standard, The New York Post, The Daily Caller, The Daily Wire, and Newsmax.

“Ike and Dutch: Mentor, Protégé, and Common Sense” is Kopelson’s book talk, in which audioclips, previously lost to history, reveal presidential candidate, and later President, Ronald Reagan discussing the critical importance of Eisenhower’s mentorship of Reagan in world affairs (Vietnam, the Tet Offensive, the USS Pueblo incident, and much more), which extended through the end of Reagan’s presidency and beyond. Kopelson has spoken at the Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library in Abilene, Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, the Richard M. Nixon Presidential Library, The Citadel, The Heritage Foundation, The Ronald W. Reagan Society at Eureka College, the U.S. Army War College, The Naval War College, and Pepperdine University’s School of Public Policy. CSPAN filmed his book talk and made it part of their American Presidency series.

Gene Kopelson is national trustee of the Theodore Roosevelt Association, board member of the Military Historical Society of Massachusetts, an active Churchillian, and a holocaust educator. Kopelson received his AB Cum Laude in Biochemistry from Princeton University, his MD from Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons, completed his internship and residency at Harvard Medical School’s Department of Radiation Oncology at the Massachusetts General Hospital, and for two decades was director of a CT cancer center affiliated with the Yale University School of Medicine. Further details are at www.genekopelson.com and at amazon.com.

*Mr. Kopelson will be able to sign his books at the end of the presentation. If you would like to purchase his book please bring a check made out to Gene Kopelson or cash in the amount of $60.
