Geoffrey C. Shepard

Geoffrey came to Washington, DC in 1969 as a White House Fellow, after graduating from Whittier College and Harvard Law School. The youngest lawyer on President Nixon’s White House staff, he served on the Domestic Council for five years, rising to associate director. He also worked as deputy counsel on Nixon’s Watergate defense team.

He has spent much of his career researching Watergate issues and is today the foremost authority on behind-the-scenes developments, both at the White House and the Watergate Special Prosecution Force, as the scandal unfolded.

He has written three books, given dozens of lectures, and written dozens of essays. He is technical consultant to an Off Broadway stage play, did a series of podcast interviews with Hugh Hewitt in 2020, and taught an adult education course at Temple University in 2019.
