Cleveland Civil War Roundtable - Meeting 9
Judson Manor
1890 E. 107th Street
Cleveland, OH

Barbara Whalen presents, "The Fighting McCooks"

Barbara Whalen was born in Detroit, Michigan and graduated from Marymount College in Tarrytown, New York. She is a former newspaper columnist, radio and television writer, and advertising executive. Her husband, Charles, a former professor of economics at the University of Dayton, served twelve years in the Ohio General Assembly and another twelve years in the United States Congress as Ohio's Third District Representative.

Together the Whalens have co-authored four nonfiction books, including The Longest Debate: a Legislative History of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. While researching that book, the Whalens came upon the archives of the McCook family, and their initial interest in researching the McCooks turned into a twenty year project, culminating in the 2006 publication of The Fighting McCooks - America's Famous Fighting Family. Barbara and Charles Whalen live in Bethesda, Maryland.
