Famous Historian visits Michiana

Famous Historian visits Michiana

A renowned author and historian visited Michiana Sunday.

Doris Kearns Goodwin spoke at the St. Joseph Regional Medical Center President's brunch.

All proceeds from the brunch go towards paying for oncology services for people who otherwise couldn't afford them.  About 300 people showed up today to help the cause and to hear Goodwin speak.

Before the meal she talked to the media about what current presidents can learn from past ones.  "What both Lincoln and Roosevelt knew how to do so well, in a democracy it's the central strength, is how to communicate to the public and to stay close to what it is the public is feeling," said Goodwin.

The hospital said this fundraiser contributes to more than 50 percent of all the money they raise for oncology services.
