Wendell Willkie, the 1940 Presidential Campaign and Rhode Island: David Amirsadri, a senior at East Greenwich High School, was born many decades after Wendell Willkie ran for president against FDR in 1940. Willkie, a progressive internationalist, would be a quaint figure in today’s Republican Party. But David argues that there were many similarities between that campaign and the 2020 race. He shows that history repeats itself, often in surprising ways. He will share his theory in an illustrated Zoom program sponsored by the East Greenwich Historic Preservation Society. The free program is open to the public and begins at 7:30 p.m. To register, go to [email protected] The Zoom contact information will be sent to you one day before the program.
