Scripps College 1030 Columbia Ave.
Claremont, CA 91711 United States

Chris Matthews of MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews is renowned for playing host to fiery debate and impassioned political analysis. It’s unsurprising then that Matthews, a former presidential speechwriter and congressional staffer, has an affinity for political history. His latest passion project is a revealing portrait of Robert F. Kennedy. In Bobby Kennedy: A Raging Spirit, Matthews trains a keen eye on a public servant whose idealism and ability to connect with voters young or old, black or white, rich or poor, made him much beloved. Tracing Kennedy’s life from his time in the Navy, to his crucial role as attorney general, and finally to his tragic run for President, Matthews talks with the Los Angeles TimesChristina Bellatoni about one of America’s most influential political dynasties.

Matthews, in addition to hosting Hardball, is also the author of Jack Kennedy: Elusive HeroTip and the Gipper: When Politics Worked;Kennedy and Nixon; and Hardball.
