President George H.W. Bush's New England Ties

Published on 3 Dec 2018, 23:20
Former President George H.W. Bush spent much of his life in Texas, but he had strong New England ties. Born in Milton, Massachusetts, he was raised in Greenwich, Connecticut and educated at Phillips Academy Andover and Yale University. Then there's the compound in Kennebunkport, Maine, which his family has owned since the late 1800's. It's where he and his wife of 73 years, Barbara, who died a little over 7 months ago, vacationed every summer. Jim Braude was joined by Kelly Anne Chase, co-author of ‘George and Barbara Bush: A Great American Love Story,’ a book about their seven decades of marriage, which she co-wrote with the couple’s granddaughter.
