Russell L. Riley, chair of the Presidential Oral History Program of the University of Virginia’s Miller Center of Public Affairs, will give a presentation on presidential biography on Aug. 11, noon at Mānoa’s Center for Korean Studies Auditorium.

His talk will highlight the extraordinary resources that are available on presidents in a relatively small window of time, from about Franklin D. Roosevelt to Richard Nixon, and the rapid decline in those resources after Watergate. He’ll also discuss the role of oral history as a way of dealing with these deficiencies and what the Presidential Oral History Program can contribute to history.
