Title:
Landon Chronicles (1938-1941): Kenneth on How the Government Came to Seek His Services Initially (hour 64, clip 1)
Date:
1938-1941
Description:
Kenneth went to work researching the questions that President Roosevelt and Col. Donovan wanted answered, and when he had his report ready, he accompanied Donovan to the President's office. Donovan had told Kenneth how he had come to seek Kenneth's services. He had asked President Roosevelt what the first information that he wanted about Southeast Asia was. Roosevelt's answer was that he wanted to know what the Japanese intentions in Indochina were, and their intentions toward Thailand. What would they do? When would they move? Donovan's inquiry led him to Kenneth, who then realized how his touring of major universities under the sponsorship of Mortimer Graves at the American Council of Learned Societies had played a role in his coming to Washington.
