The Forgotten Founding Father with Joshua Kendall '81

Award-winning journalist Joshua Kendall '81 will discuss Noah Webster, Yale Class of 1778, and his role in publishing, politics, education, and culture. Webster is the subject of Kendall's new book "The Forgotten Founding Father".
“This is by far the best, and best written, life of Webster. Kendall makes a convincing case that Webster invented American nationalism long before the American nation came into existence.”
—Joseph J. Ellis, author of Founding Brothers: The Revolutionary Generation and His Excellency: George Washington

Joshua also has an article in the April 4 edition of The Nation about Webster and other Yalies: "A Minor Exception: On W.C. Minor and Noah Webster".
