100 years ago this February, a ten-pound future president was born in Illinois, feet first. His name was Ronald Wilson Reagan. While he eventually came to be a household name, first as an actor, then as a politician, the details of Ronald Reagan's personal life have always been more or less private. Even his own son, Ron Reagan, wasn’t fully sure of his dad’s story, until he set out to learn more about him.
His research led to a new memoir, just in time for his father’s centennial birthday next month, called “My Father at 100.” Ron Reagan shares what he learned about his father.
