Description
Episode Description
Mr. Prichard was a dazzlingly Bright Young Man when he went to Washington in 1940; he never came to the prominence predicted for him because in 1949 he was convicted of vote fraud for stuffing a ballot box. But he proves a delightful and very acute reminiscer about those heady days beginning when, at age 30, he found himself, as WFB puts it, "in almost daily contact with President Roosevelt." EFP: "The NRA [National Recovery Administration], I think, as one of the [Court] opinions said, was delegation of power run riot. And I think the NRA was largely a failure." WFB: "Mr. Roosevelt called it 'the most important and far-reaching legislation ever enacted by any American President.'" EFP: "Typical puffery.... Presidents can be silly, even the greatest ones."
Other Description
The television series Firing Line with William F. Buckley Jr. was a venue for debate and discussion on political, social, and philosophical issues with experts of the day. Firing Line broadcasts from 1966 through March 1971 were produced and syndicated by WOR-TV, a commercial station in New York, but some of them were also broadcast on noncommercial television stations. Starting in April 1971, Firing Line broadcasts were produced by the Southern Educational Communications Association, an arm of South Carolina Educational Television.
