9781414006192: The Gilded Age Presidency Reconsidered

The Gilded Age Presidency Reconsidered is are visionist account in which the author examines the leadership of Presidents Rutherford B. Hayes, James A. Garfield, Chester Arthur, and Grover Cleveland in dealing with Civil service reform, economic problems such as the tariff, and civil rights in the South. This work is limited to domestic affairs only, since the author believes that is the area in which these president accomplished much needed change. The work challenges the traditional view that Congress dominated these weak chief executives who hardly protested its actions. Nothing could be farther from reality. By taking the actions they did, these presidents not only helped solve immediate problems for the nation, but they also paved the way for a significant growth of the president as a leader of the nation in the years ahead. Without the foundations of these daring men, Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson would have encountered many more difficulties in expanding the scope of presidential power in the early twentieth century.

About the Author:

William Ketchersid has been a professor of teacher at Bryan College for 28 years. During that time, in addition to teach an array of survey classes, Dr. Ketchersid has specialized in American Constitutional history, with a strong emphasis on the presidency. As a result of his teaching and earlier work on his doctoral dissertation, he discovered that the chief executives of the Gilded, with the exception of Benjamin Harrison, have suffered from the standard view that after Grant Congress dominated the national government until the presidency began to almost miraculously emerge with intense strength during the terms of Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson. The author has discovered that Hayes, Garfield, Arthur, and Cleveland faced economic and reform issues much more boldly than most historians have been willing to admit. For this reason, he believes a brief reconsideration of the presidency during the Gilded Age is needed.
