John Woolley

Presidential scholar and Chair of the UCSB Political Science department John Woolley’s current research focuses on change over time in the American presidency and presidential use of unilateral action. Together with Gerhard Peters, Woolley has developed an extensive web-based resource on the American presidency, which is widely used by scholars and others interested in the presidency and American political history. The web-based resource is an eight year work in progress that contains over 75,000 records from the State of the Union address of George Washington to the over twenty Fireside Chats of Franklin D. Roosevelt. Originally recorded November 8, 2007.
