An Author Talk on Local History
Charles S. Clark’s discusses the presence of the American Nazi Party in Arlington from 1958-1983, including their publicity-seeking, their protests, resistance among citizens and the assassination of George Lincoln Rockwell in August 1967.

He joined Government Executive magazine in the fall of 2009. He has been on staff at The Washington Post, Congressional Quarterly, National Journal, Time-Life Books, Tax Analysts, the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges, and the National Center on Education and the Economy.
