Bush Library transcends politics, showcases presidency
Former President George W. Bush and the Bush Foundation have worked closely with SMU to make this center – comprised of the library, museum and independent institute – a reality. Bush and former First Lady and alumna Laura Bush, both Dallas residents, have been very active and visual in their support of the center’s presence at SMU.
Both have attended ceremonies, participated in symposia and, in Bush’s case, “dropped by” political science and journalism class lectures.
However, not all reactions to the center have been positive.
