Willmoore Kendall has been called a man against the world, a "maverick," an "iconoclast." He was also a professor of politics at the University of Dallas in during its early years, from 1962 to 1967. Kendall is the subject of today’s conversation with Christopher Owen, a retired professor of history at Northeastern State University and author of a new book: Heaven Can Indeed Fall: The Life of Willmoore Kendall. We discuss Kendall’s wisdom for today, how he intriguingly combined positions associated with both the political left and right, as well as the locally famous bust of Kendall you can still find the politics department at UD today.
