Lynne Olson Presentation at Princeton

The Morven Museum & Garden presented Lynne Olson, author of Those Angry Days: Roosevelt, Lindbergh and America's Fight Over World War II, 1939-1941 at Princeton University's McCosh Hall on March 6.  Dr. and Mrs. John McLaughlin attended, along with Dr. Richard Schonberg, President of the NJ World War II Book Club and Marie Somers, the Club's Director of Communications.  McCosh Hall was almost filled to capacity as Ms. Olson explained the tense and often open conflict between the interventionists who favored America's support of Britain and the isolationists who opposed it.  In Ms. Olson's latest book, these opposing views are exemplified by two of the most famous men in America, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Charles Lindbergh. Together with Ms. Olson's answers during an insightful question-and-answer period, the lecture was an informative way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

The current Morven Museum exhibition on the Lindberghs, of which this lecture was a part, runs through October 23, 2016.  More information can be found here »
