A Schlesinger Obituary

Over at The Reaction, co-blogger J. Kingston Pierce has posted what I think is one of the very best obituaries of the late historian and Kennedy advisor I’ve come across. It includes a great overview of Schlesinger’s life and many admirable accomplishments.

In the end: “Schlesinger, understandably inspired to his future by his father, showed an obvious curiosity about what had been and what was to come, together with a faith that history is more tutor than tyrant — indicating but not demanding repetition. We owe him greatly for what he left behind, now that he himself is history.”
