Re: “Inside the Conservative Takeover of Vermont's Coolidge Foundation

I am a historian and have been a member of the Coolidge Foundation since 1972.

For decades, the Foundations focus was on Cal, the Vermonter, sitting contentedly in a rocker on the piazza of the family Homestead, making wise, brief observations or telling little jokes from time to time.

Since Ms. Shlaes arrival, the group has expanded its focus to take in Calvin Coolidges full life experiences. This rightly including discussing and illuminating his conservative politics and his most successful Presidency, during which he presided over the most vital and exciting decade of the XXth Centurythe Roaring Twenties.

As historian, I certainly welcome this changed. Indeed, I congratulate Ms. Shlaes and her associates for making it possible and for making the Coolidge Foundation a truly national body of Coolidge enthusiasts, one doing much good work, especially for our nations young.

Saying that todays Coolidge Presidential Foundation is some kind of right winged organization is simply nonsensethat is, to anyone who knows the true facts. Saying so, moreover, does a great disservice the fine individuals involved. They deserve our plaudits!
