The education of Ronald Reagan the General Electric years and the untold story of his conversion to conservatism by Thomas W Evans ( )
10 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 1,692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In October 1964, Ronald Reagan gave a televised speech in support of Republican presidential nominee Barry Goldwater. "The Speech," as it has come to be known, helped launch Ronald Reagan as a leading force in the American conservative movement. However, less than twenty years earlier, Reagan was a prominent Hollywood liberal, the president of the Screen Actors Guild, and a fervent supporter of FDR and Harry Truman. While many agree that Reagan's anticommunism grew out of his experiences with the Hollywood communists of the late 1940s, the origins of his conservative ideology have remained obscure. Based on a newly discovered collection of private papers as well as interviews and corporate documents, The Education of Ronald Reagan offers new insights into Reagan's ideological development and his political ascendancy. Thomas W. Evans links the eight years (1954-1962) in which Reagan worked for General Electric--acting as host of its television program, GE Theater, and traveling the country as the company's public-relations envoy-to his conversion to conservatism. In particular, Evans reveals the profound influence of GE executive Lemuel Boulware, who would become Reagan's political and ideological mentor. Boulware, known for his tough stance against union officials and his innovative corporate strategies to win over workers, championed the core tenets of modern American conservatism-free-market fundamentalism, anticommunism, lower taxes, and limited government. Building on the ideas and influence of Boulware, Reagan would soon begin his rise as a national political figure and an icon of the American conservative movement."--Publisher's website
Mentors : making a difference in our public schools by Thomas W Evans ( Book )
2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mentors is the story of Betty Flood, a Newark, New Jersey, woman whose neighborhood youth center offers family counseling and help with homework for at-risk students. It is the story of Geoffrey Laff, whose love of science and fondness for children led to an innovative program in which Yale students share "daringly educational marvels of science" with New Haven schoolchildren. Mentors is, in fact, the enriching story of dozens of motivated individuals - from eye-on-the-future executives to concerned parents whose passion for improving the education of our children, particularly the millions of poor and disadvantaged in rural and inner-city areas, has carried them into the classroom and beyond. Against the swirl of our national education debate, Tom Evans, himself a renowned mentor, introduces us to grass-roots reformers and activists, educators with a vision, and break-the-mold business leaders. But, of equal importance, he also details how anyone can get involved and make a difference by tutoring students one-on-one, bringing talent and experience into the classroom, helping to create a new school, or even transforming an entire state. Mentors is a compelling call to action for all who care about our public schools, our children's education - and, ultimately, the future of our country. In Tom Evans's words, "Start small If you like. But start now. You are needed."
