William F. Buckley, RIP

Gerald J. Russello, Editor

We note with great sorrow the passing of the great William F. Buckley, Jr. All conservatives–indeed all Americans–have many reasons to be grateful for this happy warrior and graceful writer, who stood so forcefully for the permanent things of human existence. Those of us who follow in his footsteps will forever be indebted to him.

The relationship between the University Bookman and WFB goes back many years, almost to the beginning of American conservatism when Buckley asked Russell Kirk to contribute a column for his budding publication to be called National Review. And for many years, National Review graciously included Kirk’s quarterly Bookman with NR. We cherish our long relationship with NR, and the man who made it possible.

On behalf of the staff and advisory board of the Bookman, our condolences go out to the Buckley family. May he rest in peace.

To live with a gnawing grudge against one’s own civilization is the way to a personal Hell, not to a Terrestrial Paradise.
