Robert Moses On LBJ Stolen Election at NYPL Which Closed Branch by UN, Needing Study

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book
BBC - Honduras - CIA Trial book - NY Mag

NYC, Dec 12 –  Historian Robert Caro is working on his fifth and final volume about Lyndon Johnson, following his seminal book about Robert Moss, The Power Broker.

On December 12, he spoke at the New York Public Library in advance of December 30 release of a documentary, Turn Every Page—The Adventures of Robert Caro and Robert Gottlieb.  

In answering questions, Caro repeated a number of stories from his book Working, about his and Ina's apartment in The Bronx (on December 12, he said he'd hated it), and tracking down the man who stole an early election for LBJ.

New material involved how Knopf binds his books, and Gottlieb's love-hate relationship with the semi-colon. 

One wondered if a Caro-like book could or should be written about a lesser but sleazier figure: Antonio Guterres, UN Secretary General. Just as controlling, to the point of having critical Press roughed up and banned from the UN -- but with few to no accomplishments at SG.

But a study would illuminate the decay of international relations, at least of the UN. And maybe in DC, too, where Guterres will be on December 13, meeting with three Senators. We'll have more on that. 

 In the interim, one related thanks to but critique of the NY Public Library. In the months after Guterres had Inner City Press thrown out of the UN, and before it came to cover the SDNY courthouse, it worked out of the second floor of the NYPL's Grand Central branch on 46th Street between Lexington and Third Avenues.

 It was great. And now it is gone --   NYPL has closed the branch, after not re-opening the second floor after the COVID shut down. Many people used that branch, and the reasoning for closing it was not made public or subject to public input. Still more democratic than Guterres' UN. Turn Every Page!
