Between the Lines: Ronald Reagan

This year is the centennial of Ronald Reagan’s birth. The 40th president of the United States, Reagan was well known for his laid back attitude and his sense of humor, and his popularity has brought on many tributes and exhibitions in his honor, this year.

On Monday, July 4th, a ten-foot statue of the smiling president was unveiled in London, with an inscription stating that Reagan “won the cold war without firing a shot.”

The Shapell Manuscript Foundation also honors the president’s memory with their five-month exhibition in Beverly Hills. The exhibition features original manuscripts, letters and photos that celebrate Reagan. In their recent “Between the Lines” exhibit, the foundation presented a letter written by General Custer, adding that Ronald Reagan was a self-appointed “Custer Buff” and would have loved to see some of his work firsthand.
