Amity Ruth Shlaes
Unaffiliated Independent Scholar (Brooklyn, NY 11201)
Calvin Coolidge Blog

Dr. Amity Shlaes is completing a biography of Calvin Coolidge that would revise historians' usually harsh view of the Coolidge presidency. Coolidge's economic policies, she argues, created more growth in the 1920s than historians have recognized. In re-examining Coolidge's administration, she would attempt to stimulate public and scholarly debate about his legacy through the Coolidge Blog, which would post one or two documents each week and invite commentary on both the documents and Coolidge's presidency.
