NEW FROM ORMEAU BOOKS: YANKEE DOODLES by Dennis Kennedy
Dennis Kennedy was a World
Press Institute Fellow at Macalester
College in St Paul, Minnesota, in
1963-64. Yankee Doodles is his
account of twelve months that were
at times tragic, at times hilarious, and
which took him from New York to
Minnesota, from Newark, NJ, to
Butte, Montana, from the White
House to the Cow Palace in San
Francisco. He gives a snapshot of a
very different America, one just
emerging from the Eisenhower years,
beginning to confront the challenge
of racism and civil rights, not yet
engulfed in Vietnam, but having to
withstand the seismic shock of the
assassination of JFK.
Yankee Doodles is based on a
spasmodic diary kept during that
year in the form of articles written for
private circulation among his fellow
Fellows, on other published material,
and on the author’s photographs, and
on three drawings by the late Orhan
Duru, his Turkish room-mate for
most of the year.
