|Event Details:||The US Constitution did not create the president's cabinet—the delegates to the Constitutional Convention explicitly rejected the idea. However, faced with unprecedented diplomatic, constitutional, and domestic challenges, President George Washington concluded he couldn't make decisions alone. Join Dr. Lindsay M. Chervinsky as she discusses her new book, The Cabinet: George Washington and the Creation of an American Institution. She will explain how Washington formed this powerful institution and why its legacy is so important.
Dr. Lindsay M. Chervinsky is Scholar in Residence at the Institute for Thomas Paine Studies at Iona College and Senior Fellow at the International Center for Jefferson Studies. Previously, she was a historian at the White House Historical Association.
