Irish Catholic Politician

The life and legacy of Alfred Emanuel Smith (1873-1944) is examined in this video portrait of Catholic who rose to prominence in New York politics as the champion of the working class, became the Democratic candidate for President in 1928 and was defeated in a campaign marked by anti-Catholic bigotry. Providing insights on this are David O’Brien, Robert Disch and other historians, politicians and commentators.
