Christian Herter -- Heir Unapparent

Mallan, John P.
February 1956
New Republic;2/6/56, Vol. 134 Issue 6, p8
The article presents information about presidential candidates contesting the next elections, with special emphasis on Christian Herter. Once again, at his press conference of January 25, 1956 U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower cast doubt upon his availability for a second term. The man most people are looking up to and hope to build, is governor Christian Herter of Massachusetts. Publicity men now face the challenge of making Herter, a household figure in a very short time. But they start with the substantial advantages of a striking figure, rich in background and experience. Herter is part of the patrician intellectual tradition that gave the nation leaders like Theodore Roosevelt.
