Legacy Forums

Beginning in January, 2010, Geoff Shepard, along with Frank Gannon and support staff from the Richard Nixon Foundation, began arranging and producing a series of Nixon Legacy Forums. The forums focus on policy initiatives of the Nixon Administration and feature discussions among administration members who worked on them—and helped create the documents and other materials now available to scholars and researchers at the Richard Nixon Library.
