The Robert H. Jackson Center is pleased to host its annual celebration of Warren County native and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson on Wednesday, February 12, 2020 in the Warren County Courthouse.

Harward will base his remarks on his current book, The Presidency in Times of Crisis and Disaster, which covers crises and disasters from the presidency of George Washington through Donald Trump’s first two years in office. Natural disasters, wars, assassinations, terrorist attacks, mass shootings, economic crises, riots, tragedies, and political scandals are some of the important events included in the book. Harward explores key dimensions of the presidential response to the crisis or disaster in question to provide insights into the political, economic, and cultural contexts in which each event occurred and to which the president responded.

The Robert H. Jackson Center of Jamestown, New York honors Justice Robert H. Jackson’s enduring legacy at the annual Warren Day event commemorating his birthday. Born in Spring Creek, Pennsylvania, on February 13, 1892, Robert H. Jackson was a country lawyer who went on to become U.S. Solicitor General, U.S. Attorney General, U.S. Supreme Court Justice, and Chief American Prosecutor at the Nuremberg War Trials.
