Historian Douglas Brinkley on Presidential Greatness

Historian Douglas Brinkley

By Joyce Kryszak

Buffalo, NY – Douglas Brinkley has been called "the best of the new generation of American historians." High praise considering the source. It was historian Stephen Ambrose, who passed away just a few weeks ago, who said that about his friend. Brinkley was in Buffalo recently for the Theodore Roosevelt Symposium.
