Mr. Republican

White, Robert
April 1954
New Republic;4/19/54, Vol. 130 Issue 16, p17
The article focuses on the book "The Taft Story," by William S. White. The book is about Robert A. Taft, one of the keenest minds ever devoted to public service in the U.S. Taft possessed a superb intellect which he utilized efficiently as a legislator. He could master any intricate detail of pertinent information concerning a pending bill. It must have been an unprecedented spectacle when, in the Seventy-ninth Congress, he stood up as minority floor leader with the majority questioning and depending upon him for information on one of their own measures. Because of his extraordinary keenness, he was sometimes impatient with the slower witted and would blurt out, even to an admirer.
