John Gilbert Winant: Citizen of Concord, Citizen of the World
John Gilbert Winant is one of the most interesting figures to emerge from New Hampshire. Lynne Olson’s recent book, Citizens of London, has helped fuel renewed interest in this complex and fascinating man. Educated at St. Paul's School, governor of New Hampshire during the Depression, a close ally of Franklin D. Roosevelt, first leader of the Social Security Administration, head of the International Labor Organization in Geneva, and ambassador to England during the height of the London Blitz, Winant’s resume was one of national and international accomplishment.
