Presidential Assassinations, a CLL class led by Clay McShane PDF Print E-mail
Community Classes

In 1835 Richard Lawrence, a bipolar house painter who believed himself Richard III, misfired two pistol shots at President Andrew Jackson. Jackson caned him unconscious and Lawrence was institutionalized until his death in 1861. This was one of the first attempts to assassinate a president. Presidential assassinations in each of these three classes will present a different point of view. Since Jackson, there have been 31 documented threats from disturbed individuals. The instructor will present some of those, including John Hinckley, but also Lee Harvey Oswald and Charles Guiteau. The second class will present attempts by nationalist groups, recently Middle Eastern, but historically from the American Confederacy and such diverse places as Puerto Rico and Argentina. The last class will focus on the present day. Anarchism, traditionally the most common ideology of political killers, seems in decline at least in the US. Nevertheless the secret service estimates that President Obama gets 30 death threats a day. Assassination is all too often part of the American political landscape, with assassination fantasies being overly abundant. Discussion will focus on how some of these threats are made and the outcomes of a few of them. On July 30, the movie “JFK” will be shown followed by a Q&A session led by the instructor. Clay McShane holds a PhD from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and has taught it at Northeastern University in Boston since 1976. He has published four books and numerous essays in refereed journals. Class meets Wednesdays, Aug. 20-Sept. 3, 10 am. Fee: $15. Register: Clubhouse I.
