The Kansas Work Ethic of Dwight D. Eisenhower
February 15, 2014, 2:00 PM CT
Presented by Roy Bird
Ike's parents worked hard to feed and clothe their family of six boys. In addition to the daily chores each brother was assigned, all of the Eisenhower boys found ways to earn extra money to help support the family. Young Ike worked various jobs, from selling vegetables and his mother's hot tamales door-to-door, to laboring as a farmhand and working for several years at the Belle Springs Creamery. He managed these jobs while earning good grades in school and participating in sports and community activities. This talk will explore how Ike's Kansas work ethic prepared him for military and presidential greatness.
