On October 15, 2021 at 10:00 A.M., the MacArthur Memorial will open a new special exhibit entitled: Command Presence: MacArthur, Media & Mass Appeal. This new exhibit will explore MacArthur's relationship with the press and the role mass media plays in the perception of heroes, villains, and major events. It will also trace MacArthur's evolution as a pop-culture figure and highlight the continued international resonance of this image.
This exhibit will remain on display until FALL 2023.

It’s no secret that Douglas MacArthur had a paranoid streak when it came to his career. As his biographer William Manchester notes, he felt he had enemies in the army – “deskbound men who envied and resented a fighting officer.” This paranoia was apparent in World War I in his dealings with General Pershing’s Chaumont HQ staff – including the star of Chaumont, George Marshall. While he openly acknowledged the administrative skills of “deskbound” officers like Marshall, MacArthur’s internal distrust of Marshall festered in World War II and then had grave consequences during the Korean War.
Join Jim Zobel and Amanda Williams on December 10 at noon EST for a virtual discussion of the MacArthur/Marshall relationship in World War II and the Korean War.
