Through the Years

The Nixon Family

Julie, Tricia, RN, and Pat (1968)

Describing the first family during the Nixon administration (1969-1974), author Cass R. Sandak wrote: "The Nixons had their own style—simple, direct and fundamentally American. They were not flashy or flamboyant. Sometimes they were a little self-conscious or uncertain. Their manner was strictly Middle American. They looked like the family down the block. To many Americans, they seemed upright, religious and hardworking." from The Nixons (1992) by Cass R. Sandak

Historian Stephen E. Ambrose: I wrote Nixon on a number of occasions, asking him this or that question or requesting an interview, but got no reply. To my knowledge he spoke about me only once. He was on the Charlie Rose TV show, promoting his book. Rose asked him what he thought of what I had written about this or that subject. "I never read Ambrose," Nixon shot back. "What?" Rose exclaimed. "You never read Ambrose?" Nixon replied, "He is just another left-wing historian." I've always loved that line because in quoting it I can add, "[President] Eisenhower didn't think so." Plus which, it is so Nixonian. He doesn't just stick in the knife: once he has it buried, he gives it a little twist. If he wanted to call me a left-wing historian, that is his right. Goodness knows I call him lots of names. To add that "just another" to the characterization was twisting the knife.
