Notes
-  Native-born Chicagoan Michael Beschloss has served as a historian at the Smithsonian Institution, a senior associate member at St. Antony's College (Oxford) and a senior fellow of the Annenberg Foundation. His first book, "Kennedy and Roosevelt: The Uneasy Alliance," began as his Williams College honors thesis. In "Mayday: Eisenhower, Khrushchev and the U-2 Affair" Beschloss argued that the spring of 1960 was a turning point in the U.S. confrontation with the Soviet Union. "The Crisis Years: Kennedy and Khrushchev, 1960-1963" was praised by David Remnick in The New Yorker as the "definitive" history of John F. Kennedy and the Cold War. Beschloss serves as the NBC News presidential historian and a contributor to the "PBS NewsHour." His new book is "Presidents of War."
