Description

Dale Robertson explains his role in the formation of the New Perspectives policy, particularly Jerry Franklin’s influence on his decisions. He discusses the controversy in Washington over the new policy, stemming largely from the fact that the decision to implement was made, according to Robertson, less out of scientific research than political pressure. He mentions Bill Riley, Clayton Yeutter and Hal Salwasser.
