The Century Foundation and Pace University invite you to celebrate the release of The Class of ‘74: Congress After Watergate and the Roots of Partisanship. Join us at 5:00 PM on May 3rd at Pace University for an evening reception and short program featuring:
John Lawrence, author of The Class of ‘74, visiting professor at the University of California’s Washington Center and former chief of staff to Speaker and Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi
Elizabeth Holtzman, former member of the U.S. House of Representatives (1972–1981), former Brooklyn district attorney, former New York City comptroller, and current co-chair of Herrick’s Government Relations Group
Lawrence, a thirty-eight-year veteran of the Washington political scene, and the Honorable Liz Holtzman, who defeated a fifty-year incumbent in 1972 to become the youngest woman ever elected to Congress at age 31, will discuss lessons for today from the post-Watergate Congress. Holtzman served on the House Judiciary Committee during Watergate, where she voted for the impeachment of Richard Nixon.
