Interview with Bailey Guard, January 31, 1980

Project: John Sherman Cooper Oral History Project

Interview Summary

A discussion about JSC's press releases and campaigning around 1960 begins the interview. During the JFK administration, JSC refused the Republican tactic of appealing to the anti-Catholic and anti-Kennedy vote. JFK and JSC were very close, especially at crucial times like during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Cooper took his duties on the Warren Commission very seriously and devoted much of his time to its work. Guard discusses Senator Cooper's work on civil rights, tobacco and the environment. In 1967, JSC was on the Foreign Relations Committee. The interview concludes with discussion about Cooper's management of his staff during and after this period.
