Discussing The Books "Mr. Chairman" And "Furnishing Eternity"

Featured Audio

Ray C. Bliss was a stickler for details who hated to lose. He chaired the Summit County and Ohio GOP and, in the mid-1960s, the national party in his 50-year behind-the-scenes career, detailed in a book "Mr. Chairman" by John Green and William Hershey. Then, David Giffels, a professor at the University of Akron, tells us what he learned building his own coffin with his father. It's the focus of his memoir, Furnishing Eternity.
