Race for the White House show card

Dr. John Robert Greene, the Paul J. Schupf Professor of History and Humanities at Cazenovia College, is featured in two episodes of the CNN series “Race for the White House,” which is returning Sunday, September 13 after being preempted by the pandemic this past spring.

Each episode of the CNN docuseries tells the story of one iconic campaign for the Presidency of the United States while capturing the tension and drama of high-stakes presidential elections and their impact on the country. Dr. Greene’s insights are featured in the Ford vs Carter 1976 election airing on Sunday, September 13 at 10:00 p.m. and 1:00 a.m., and the Eisenhower vs. Stevenson 1952 election airing on Sunday, March 20 at 10:00 p.m. and 1:00 a.m.

“I am grateful to CNN and the producers for the opportunity to participate in such a widely respected television series,” noted Greene. “Providing historical and political insight adds perspective to the 2020 presidential campaign coverage.”

Dr. Greene has taught at Cazenovia College for the past forty years. He also serves as the College Archivist, the director of the History Program, the co-director of the Dual Major in History and Social Science, the director of the Washburn Teaching and Research Fellowship Program, and the director of the annual Wheler Conference on World Affairs. Dr. Greene’s teaching and writing specialty lies in American Political History, particularly the American presidency. He has written or edited nineteen books. In 1993 he was named Distinguished Faculty Member, and in 2000 he was awarded Cazenovia College's first endowed chair.
