Remembering President George H.W. Bush

February 19, 2019

Engage at the Bush Center, presented by Highland Capital Management

This special two-part event will pay tribute to President George H.W. Bush’s life of service. What promises to be a memorable evening will begin with an intimate conversation with Secretary James Baker, dear friend and former U.S. Secretary of State and White House Chief of Staff under President George H.W. Bush, moderated by Talmage Boston, historian and Dallas attorney.

The next panel featured former personal aides whose combined tenure spanned four decades, providing unique — and entertaining — perspectives of working closely with President Bush before, during, and after 41’s presidency. David Bates, personal aide to President Bush on the campaign trail and for the 1980 presidential election; Tim McBride, personal aide to President Bush from 1985 to 1990; and Tom Frechette, personal aide to President Bush in his post-presidency share their stories.  Moderated by Lindsey Knutson, Director of Leadership Programs at the George W. Bush Institute and former personal aide to Mrs. Laura Bush.
