I was awarded a Rockefeller Archive Center (RAC) Grant-in-Aid to support research for my doctoral project which investigates how, why, and with what success the Republican party was able to challenge President Lyndon B. Johnson's Great Society agenda between 1964 and 1968. My nine-day visit to the RAC in Spring 2012 marked the final stop on a two month long, cross-country trip which included research at libraries and archives in Texas, California, Michigan, Virginia, District of Columbia, and finally, New York. Before reaching the RAC I had thus already explored the papers of President Lyndon B. Johnson and many prominent Republicans including: Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, John Tower, Gerald Ford, Melvin Laird, Hugh Scott, Edward Brooke, and Jacob Javits. The bulk of my research at the RAC focused on the Personal Papers (RG4) of Nelson A. Rockefeller (NAR) and the NAR Gubernatorial Papers (RG15), while I also spent a short time with the Papers of Winthrop Rockefeller (RG9).
