The Mother as Candidate

Sheryl Gay Stolberg of The New York Times quotes my book in a front-page story about Lenore Romney’s 1970 race for the U.S. Senate. The accompanying video has some great clips of Mitt Romney’s mother from her appearances as a candidate and first lady in Michigan in the 1962-70 vintage.

A Chapeau in the Ring

The July-August issue of Michigan History has my article on Elly Peterson’s 1964 campaign for a U.S. Senate seat from Michigan. It includes some good photos from that time, as well as photos of campaign brochures and memorabilia.
