His first book, V. O.

His research was based on Key’s voluminous personal papers, interviews with his family, colleagues, and graduate students, plus a thorough study of all of his published and unpublished writings, much of which is not readily accessible today.
Dr. Lucker is an active participant in the American Political Science Association, the Southern Political Science Association, and the Ohio Association of Economists and Political Scientists.
