ON-Lion Letter
The Hudson Institute in Washington, D.C., was founded more than 50 years ago by the legendary strategist Herman Kahn (1922-1983) with the mission of thinking about the future in bold and unconventional ways.  Hudson's Herman Kahn Award honors creative and visionary leaders who embody Kahn's dedication to strong American national security, guarded optimism about the future, and keen appreciation of the role of technology as a driver of global economic progress.

In December in New York City, Hudson will honor Dick Cheney with its Herman Kahn Award.  Across four decades of public life, Cheney served at the highest levels of government during some of the most-critical days in modern American history -- including as Vice President from 2001 to 2009, Secretary of Defense from 1989 to 1993, member of Congress from Wyoming from 1979 to 1989, and White House Chief of Staff under President Gerald Ford from 1975 to 1977.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports Hudson Institute programs and projects.
