Charles W. Calhoun is a professor of history at East Carolina University. A former National Endowment for the Humanities fellow, Calhoun is the author or editor of four books, including The Gilded Age, and a member of the editorial board of the Journal of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era. He lives in Greenville, North Carolina.
Well written - obviously the author had done his research well.
Charles Calhoun's biography is a good if brief overview of Harrison's life (all the books in the American Presidents series are under 200 pages).
I would recommend this book and the whole series for anyone interested in American history as experienced through our Chief Executives.
