Carter and Reagan

I knew Jimmy Carter. He was a nuclear engineer, of course. Here I am with him at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Achievement in Minneapolis in 1984. This is Ted Turner, who is the head of CNN. Here is Rosalynn Carter at the American Academy of Achievement dinner. In 1987 there was a farewell dinner for Admiral Rickover; and here's Nixon and Carter and Ford at that dinner, which was attended by my wife Helen and me.

I was appointed as a member of the National Commission on Excellence in Education that came out with the report, A Nation at Risk. Here we are meeting with President Reagan at the time we gave him our report. Here I am with President Reagan with a mock-up of the report. I'm not so sure he knew what we were talking about.
