Description

This volume presents a record of the Ford administration. From among the many public speeches delivered by Wendell Ford during the three years he served as Governor, W. Landis Jones has chosen a representative sample that reflects the wide-ranging concerns of the Ford administration. Arranged topically, the volume covers subjects from government reorganization and party politics to health and welfare, education, highways, and energy and environment.

This selection does not include executive orders or proclamations, since they are part of the preserved public record. The cross section of public speeches and press releases that are included provides an easily accessible source for historians to view the broad spectrum of issues that faced the people of the Commonwealth during the early years of the 1970s.

Included also are appendixes that provide a complete listing of speeches delivered by Governor Ford during his term of office, a chart that shows the organization of Kentucky government at the end of the Ford administration, and a synopsis of the administration by Thomas L. Preston.

W. Landis Jones is Professor of Political Science at the University of Louisville.
