Sunday Morning Seminar CoSponsored by Brotherhood – Larry Tye

Demagogue: The Life and Long Shadow of Senator Joe McCarthy

The definitive biography of the most dangerous demagogue in American history, based on first-ever review of his personal and professional papers, medical and military records, and recently unsealed transcripts of his closed-door Congressional hearings. Larry Tye was a longtime journalist — at the Boston Globe, Anniston (AL) Star, and Louisville Courier-Journal — and a Nieman Fellow at Harvard. Tye’s books have ranged from biographies of PR pioneer Edward L. Bernays, Negro Leagues legend Satchel Paige, and Superman, to explorations of the Jewish diaspora, the Pullman porters, and ECT, the most stigmatized treatment in medicine. Tye runs a Boston-based fellowship program for health reporters.
