Dr. Sennholz, successfully blended his knowledge of the science of economics with a deep commitment to the moral principles governing a society of free and responsible individuals. To those students who were open, Dr. Sennholz's message was transformative. As the history of the Austrian School in the mid-to late-twentieth century is written, the contributions of Dr. Hans Sennholz as a teacher and popular writer must be accounted for as well. He provided scores of young people with the opportunity to learn the teachings of the Austrian School of Economics at a time when Mises's name was no longer recognized by economists.
