Irving Kristol (1920-2009)

The “Godfather” of Neo-Conservatism

The GW Young America’s Foundation would like to pay tribute and honor the passing of Irving Kristol (1920-2009). Kristol was a highly influential columnist, intellectual, and essayist. He is widely regarded as the godfather of “Neoconservatism.” Kristol founded three important magazines–Encounter, The Public Interest, and The National Interest–and served as Henry Luce professor of urban values at New York University, a distinguished fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and a columnist for The Wall Street Journal. His writing transformed American conservatism and popularized new ideas, such as supply-side economics, that formed the intellectual architecture of the Reagan Revolution.
