A Tribute to George Resch

May 7, 2006

Few persons have done as much as George Resch to advance libertarian scholarship. He was a protégé of the outstanding libertarian thinker F. A. "Baldy" Harper and worked with Harper at the William Volker Fund. While working there, he helped Harper establish the Institute for Humane Studies and became part of Murray Rothbard's inner circle. He became an authority on education and wrote a seminal paper that dissected the concept of equality of opportunity. Anyone fortunate enough to have met George will be struck immediately by his incisive mind. His intellectual gifts immediately impressed Harper, who lectured at the advanced session of the Freedom School in Colorado that George attended in 1958.
