Gubernatorial Authors Discuss Rockefeller, Roosevelt
Email share


We sit down with two biographers of two of the most acclaimed governors in our state's history. 

First up, Casey Seiler interviews Richard Norton Smith, whose exhaustive biography on Nelson Rockefeller just hit bookstores. Smith spent the better part of the last 14 years writing 'On His Own Terms.'

Later, Matt Ryan discusses the life and times of Franklin Delano Roosevelt with a man who has been researching the Hyde Park native for half a century, Geoffrey C. Ward. If that name sounds familiar, it is because he is the longtime collaborator of Ken Burns.
