Abstract

Throughout his industrious career, which included cabinet-level service under four presidents and ended in his fourth term as a United States Senator from New York, one of Daniel Patrick Moynihan's central preoccupations was the role of the family in shaping society. This thesis will track Moynihan's changing beliefs regarding the family, spanning his career from the 1960s until his retirement in 2000. His academic writings, personal correspondences, speeches and policy positions will all be examined. It will be contended that Moynihan's views regarding the family were highly and consistently conservative throughout his career, and that this conservatism reflected Catholic social thought, as well as a deeply held conviction that culture was unavoidably an organic and inherited process--by necessity coming from the family and not the state.
