Alexander Butterfield shares his memories of Richard Nixon and the Watergate scandal
A trusted member of the Nixon’s staff since the President’s inauguration in 1969, in February 1971 Alexander Butterfield was instructed to oversee the installation of the now infamous White House taping system. In 1973 he revealed its existence to the Senate Select Committee and the Watergate investigation was transformed. Butterfield will discuss his experiences in the White House, his memories of Richard Nixon and the Watergate scandal in conversation with Professor Iwan Morgan (Commonwealth Fund Professor of American History, University College London).
