From his days at President Lincoln’s side in the White House, his years living on Millionaire’s Row in Cleveland, to his time as Secretary of State under both Presidents McKinley and Teddy Roosevelt, we look at a life well-lived and well-traveled. Appearances by Queen Victoria, Rutherford B. Hayes and many more historic figures of the late 19th/early 20th Century. John Hay is one of the architects of the American Century. John talks about writing a great biography and why Hay is a “biographer’s dream.” Rate and review the show on iTunes and follow us on Instagram @ohiovtheworldpocast.
