Coolidge Autobiography: Chapter One Audio

May 12, 2014

President Coolidge’s autobiography is an intimate look at the life of the President in his own words. With his admirable New England humor and compelling narrative style, Coolidge recounts the sights and sounds of his rural Vermont upbringing, his impressive thirst for education, and the years of public service he devoted to the people in Northampton, Boston, and, ultimately, Washington, D.C. Here we provide an audio recording of Chapter One of the Autobiography for your listening pleasure. You can also access a YouTube version of the reading here. The entire autobiography will be serialized in audio form both on the Foundation’s website and YouTube Channel in the future.
