Wishing him well . . .

The Russell Kirk Center extends its good wishes to Edwin Feulner on his retirement as president of The Heritage Foundation. We have deeply appreciated his long-time support of Russell Kirk’s thought and look forward to Ed’s ongoing contributions to American public life. It is appropriate to highlight on this occasion this classic Feulner essay on the roots of modern conservative thought from Burke to Kirk (also available as a PDF). And watch shortly for a review of Lee Edwards’s new book, Leading the Way: The Story of Ed Feulner and the Heritage Foundation in the University Bookman.
