A complete, edited transcript is now available of the Bradley Center's November 20, 2008 book discussion of
The Unsung Heroes of the Conservative Movement
Thursday, November 20, 2008 - 12:00 to 2:00 p.m.
At a moment when conservative philanthropy is in a critically self-reflective mood, RON ROBINSON and NICOLE HOPLIN of Young America’s Foundation have written a new book about the original funders of conservative causes, most of whose names are unfamiliar to the public, often because they sought anonymity. In Funding Fathers: the Unsung Heroes of the Conservative Movement (Regnery, Sept. 2008), we have the first account of such funders and activists as William Volker, Antony Fisher, Dean Clarence Manion, and Joseph Coors, Sr. These figures reaped ample rewards from a free society, came to believe that it faced grave threats from collectivist impulses at home and abroad, and determined to direct their fortunes and energies to the defense of liberty. Robinson and Hoplin argue that a new generation of conservative funders should draw inspiration from their examples.
On November 20, Hudson Institute's Bradley Center had the pleasure of hosting ROBINSON as well as AARON DORFMAN of the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy (in his first Bradley Center panel appearance) and National Review's JOHN MILLER to discuss the new volume. The Bradley Center’s WILLIAM SCHAMBRA moderated the discussion.
