A CHEER FOR THE THINKERS
Believe it or not, there is public recognition for those who stand for American exceptionalism, free markets, limited government, federalism and personal liberty. The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation offers such recognition. On Thursday the Milwaukee-based organization hands out its annual awards to the rare and significant folks whose work reflects those bedrock ideas. In an event in the nation’s capital on Thursday hosted by columnist George Will, the foundation honors a quartet of gents who hail from the academic, legal and media arenas.
Receiving a Bradley Prize: Peter Berkowitz, a political scientist at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution; Christopher DeMuth, a Hudson Institute fellow; Philip Hamburger, a Columbia Law School professor; and Walter E. Williams, an economics professor at George Mason University.
The prize selection committee included Mr. Will, Victor Davis Hanson, Charles Krauthammer and Richard W. Graber, chairman of the foundation.
