Please join the Washington and Lee DC Alumni Chapter as we kick off 2011 with our Distinguished Alumni Breakfast series. On February 16, we’ll host Garland S. Tucker, III, W&L Class of 1969 and President and CEO of Triangle Capital, a publicly-traded specialty finance company based in Raleigh.
Garland is a lifelong student of history who recently released his first book The High Tide of American Conservatism. The book chronicles the 1924 presidential election’s top candidates – Republican Calvin Coolidge and Democrat John W. Davis (an alum of both W&L’s undergrad and law schools). With a distinguished career in politics, law, and diplomacy, Davis is arguably one of the most influential W&L graduates – and unfortunately also one of the most forgotten. The story features many other links to Lexington, including an account of the famous 1924 W&L mock convention.
