A CHEER FOR THE THINKERS

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

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.
