Kotlowski is no stranger to C-SPAN. Earlier this year, he appeared as a panelist at the Richard Nixon Library and Birthplace in Yorba Linda, CA, discussing “Understanding Richard Nixon and His Era: Domestic Policy.”

The professor has earned critical acclaim for his book Nixon’s Civil Rights: Politics, Principle, and Policy, published by Harvard University Press. More recently, he has conducted extensive research into the life and work of former Indiana governor and Franklin D. Roosevelt cabinet member Paul V. McNutt, which Indiana University Press plans to publish as Paul V. McNutt and the Age of F.D.R.

That research earned him an interview in the upcoming documentary Rescue in the Philippines, discussing U.S. and Philippine efforts to transport Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany to Manila in the late 1930s. A trailer for the film is expected to premiere this month at the Israeli Film Festival in Tel Aviv.
