The Fifties ... Fifty Years Later: "Connection" Interviews Historian David Halberstam on a Half Century of Change
Connection: The Journal of the New England Board of Higher Education, v20 n2 p13, 15, 17-18 Fall 2005
This article presents an interview with historian David Halberstam who graduated from Harvard University in 1955 after serving as managing editor of the "Harvard Crimson." Upon graduation, he joined the staff of the "Daily Times Leader" newspaper of West Point, Mississippi, and then moved on to the "Nashville Tennessean," where he covered the Civil Rights Movement. Halberstam joined "The New York Times" in 1960 and won a Pulitzer Prize four years later for his critical reporting on the Vietnam War. He is the author of more than a dozen bestsellers including "The Best and the Brightest," "The Powers That Be," "The Reckoning" and "The Fifties," his colorful chronicle of the decade of Eisenhower, Oppenheimer, mass-produced hamburgers, Holiday Inns ... and the birth of New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE). In this interview, Halberstam talks about the past 50 years of educational progress in New England and his childhood days in Winsted, Connecticut.
