I took this photograph of his boyhood home in Dixon, Illinois in the course of a visit to friends in De Kalb, Illinois during July 1982.
Ronald Reagan was in my view undoubtedly one of the great U.S. Presidents of modern times. He presided over the demise of the scourge of Communism as a major force in world affairs and for that, amongst other things, I remain deeply grateful. He may not have been the greatest actor who ever lived, but his political skills were strong. Rest in Peace.
