Joe T. Robinson: Always A Loyal Democrat
This biography is a fitting tribute to the life and accomplishments of Senate majority leader Joseph Taylor Robinson, undoubtedly one of the most powerful U.S. senators of the early twentieth century. Weller uses the story of Robinson's life to illuminate the inner chambers of the Senate and to explore such controversial issues as the Versailles Peace Treaty/League of Nations, the Teapot Dome Scandal, the legislation of the "first 100 days" of the New Deal, and FDR's plan to "pack" the Supreme Court. The study further chronicles Robinson's run for the vice-presidency in 1928, the first southerner on a major ticket after the Civil War, and his three terms as chairman of the Democratic National Convention, in 1920, 1928, and 1936.
