Robert Brent Toplin

Our studies will draw attention to the character and leadership of Woodrow Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, and Ronald Reagan. We’ll investigate their upbringing, early life experiences, and personality formation. Central to our discussion will be an examination of psychological factors, which may help us understand why these leaders thought and acted as they did. We will also focus on a few major crises during their presidencies. These “test cases” will illustrate the controversial nature of the presidents’ decision making.
Silver Member: $90; Gold Member: $81.
