Mr. Mayor: Ep. 8 - Robert F. Wagner Jr
Robert F. Wagner Junior's most impactful speech may very well have been his last as a three-term mayor. In his 1965 farewell address, he outlined the problems that swelled during his administration - all the makings of an urban crisis for New York and other large U.S. cities. These issues facing Wagner were all the more challenging as he walked in the great political footsteps of his father, the distinguished U.S. senator.
