About the panel:
James Cannon's new book, Gerald R. Ford: An Honorable Life, was released posthumously in May 2013 during President Ford's centennial year. Cannon, who served as Ford's White House domestic policy advisor, presents a comprehensive narrative account of the life of Gerald Ford, from Ford's humble background in Grand Rapids, Michigan, to his career in Congress and his short but astonishing presidency. Join us as we welcome James Cannon's sons, Scott--who contributed an afterword to the book--and Jim in a conversation moderated by Ford School of Public Policy Professor Barry Rabe.
