A Political Biography of Gerald R. Ford

Following President Richard Nixon’s resignation in 1974, Gerald Ford was catapulted into the nation’s highest office and became the first and only unelected president. Historian Scott Kaufman traces Ford’s unprecedented rise, from his Depression-era childhood through his service in World War II, his entry into Congress in the early stages of the Cold War, and his role as minority leader in the U.S. House of Representatives.

In collaboration with the New-York Historical Society, the Bryant Park Reading Room presents a series of free lectures on popular topics including the Supreme Court, the Cold War, presidential biography, and more.
