William Howard Taft and the First Motoring Presidency, 1909-1913

Michael L. Bromley '86 is the author of William Howard Taft and the First Motoring Presidency, 1909-1913, a sprightly written political and social history centering around President Taft and his tenure in the White House. The book emphasizes the place of the automobile in that political era, and especially in relation to the Taft presidency, which is sympathetically reappraised. Appendices provide information on the White House garage and stable, Taft’s speech to the Automobile Club of America and a glossary of terms and names.


"As educational as it is entertaining, Bromley's book masterfully conveys the top-level politics that drove the Motor Age." -Automobile Quarterly
