Presented by Dr. Mark Lytle, emeritus professor of history and environmental studies at Bard College.

Dr. Lytle will speak on the 1944 presidential election when both candidates were from Dutchess County. President Roosevelt—seeking his fourth term—was from Hyde Park, while Governor Thomas E. Dewey was from Pawling. Dewey campaigned against the New Deal and for smaller government and less regulation of the economy. This was the only time both presidential candidates were from the same county.
