The Miller Center began this project in August 2001 to capture for posterity the words of key figures in the political life of Ronald Reagan. The project includes some 45 interviews with those most closely involved in Reagan’s political career, including Cabinet members, White House staff and campaign advisors. Those interviewed include Howard Baker, James Baker III, Michael Deaver, Fred Fielding, Alexander Haig, Jeane Kirkpatrick, Edwin Meese, George Shultz and Caspar Weinberger.
