John Lewis Gaddis, who has been deemed the "dean of Cold War historians" by The New York Times, discussed his new biographical book, "George F. Kennan: An American Life," at the Wilson School on March 1, 2012. He was joined in conversation by Bart Gellman '82, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, author in residence and visiting lecturer in public and international affairs at the Wilson School. John Ikenberry, the Albert G. Milbank Professor of Politics and International Affairs, introduced Gaddis to the assembled crowd. George F. Kennan '25 has been noted as the one of the key architects of the "Marshall Plan," which was designed to rebuild Europe following World War II, as well as the author of the policy of "containment" espoused by U.S. The talk was co-sponsored by the Center for International Security Studies.
