Conversations with History: Institute of International Studies, UC Berkeley
See a webcast of this interview:
This interview is part of the Institute's "Conversations with History" series, and uses Internet technology to share with the public Berkeley's distinction as a global forum for ideas.
Welcome to a "Conversation with History." I'm Harry Kreisler of the Institute of International Studies. Our distinguished guest today is Alan K. Simpson, the former U.S. senator from Wyoming who holds the Lombard Chair at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. Senator Simpson is the 1997 Jefferson Lecturer on the UC Berkeley campus. In 1980 Ward Sinclair wrote in the Washington Post, "A senator who finds renewal in Thurber and Mencken, keeps western originals by Russell and Remington on his walls, and sees the Senate as something of a funny farm deserves a closer look."
