The Memoirs of Nixon’s Trusted Aide
Wednesday, February 15 | 3:00pm | Auditorium
Dwight Chapin President Nixon’s Personal Aide
Dwight Chapin was many things. He was an advisor, a confidante, and a friend. Most importantly, as his personal aide, he knew Richard Nixon longer and more intimately than almost any other person outside Nixon’s family. In this memoir, Chapin takes readers on an extraordinary historic journey, presenting an insider’s view of America’s most enigmatic President. Chapin relates his memorable experiences with the people who shaped the future: Henry Kissinger, his close friend Bob Haldeman, Choi En-lai, Pat Nixon, the embittered Spiro Agnew, J. Edgar Hoover, Frank Sinatra, Mark “Deep Throat” Felt, young and ambitious Roger Ailes, and John Dean. The President’s Man is a story that ranges from Coretta Scott King to Elvis Presley, from acupuncture in a Chinese hospital to the Watergate scandal and concludes with startling new insights and conclusions about the scandal that brought down Nixon’s presidency.
