Interview with C W Goodyear, President Garfield

Year(s) Discussed: 1831-1881

On this episode, I am joined by C W Goodyear, author of the new biography President Garfield, to talk about the man who he described as “a pathologically reasonable person” and his navigation through the turbulent waters of Reconstruction and Gilded Age American politics to become the 20th US President. In our discussion, we talk about some of the key individuals in Garfield’s life and political career as well as some of his achievements and failures. Believe me, there is much more to learn about Garfield than just his tragic end. More information about Garfield can be found on the website at
