Neil McCaffrey Jr. (1925–1994) was the president of the Conservative Book Club, which he founded in 1964. A year later, stating that there weren't enough titles for the book club, he founded Arlington House, which published Harry Browne's How You Can Profit From the Coming Devaluation (edited by Lew Rockwell). Many of the company's books reflected McCaffrey's enthusiasm for old films and the music of the 1920s, '30s and '40s. He founded the Nostalgia Book Club in 1968 and in 1978 took over the Movie Entertainment Book Club.
Ludwig von Mises: "Only stilted pedants can conceive the idea that there are absolute norms to tell what is beautiful and what is not. They try to derive from the works of the past a code of rules with which, as they fancy, the writers and artists of the future should comply. But the genius does not cooperate with the pundit." - Theory and History
