Presidential reflections

By JACK PALMER Staff Writer Published:

The first and second generation offspring of two U.S. Presidents reminisced about a simpler time Thursday before an appreciative crowd of nearly 500 people at Defiance Colleges Weaner Center. Its good to connect to the place Kevin McCann called home, remarked Julie (Nixon) Eisenhower, referring to the beloved former DC president. He was a dear friend, not only of Dwight Eisenhower, but also of my father. Kevin McCann was responsible for Defiance Colleges association with two U.S. presidents, added David Eisenhower. He was a very good man and we miss him very much. Despite their presidential ancestry, the Eisenhowers came across as warm, down to earth people.
