Below, Bill McGurn presented a wonderfully moving photograph of his little girl, Lucy, with the forty-first President. "I wish I knew more about the senior Bush," Bill writes. "Perhaps Peter can fill us in."
For a good brief introduction to the former president, take a look at the clip of his receiving an honorary degree from Dartmouth last year. The citation summarizes his life--and to listen is to recognize that George H. W. Bush led one of the most remarkable lives of the twentieth century. A grace note: When, just after the former president was introduced, some students began protesting--you can see the former president peering into the audience, trying to read their signs--the rest of the audience rose in a spontaneous standing ovation.
George Herbert Walker Bush, a great American.
