ON-Lion Letter
The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee has announced that one of four 2013 Bradley Prizes will be awarded to Yuval Levin, the Hertog Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center and the founding editor of National Affairs, a quarterly journal of public policy and political thought.

The award will be presented to Levin during the 10th annual Bradley Prizes ceremony that will be held at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, June 12.  Each award carries a stipend of $250,000.

Levin has had a distinguished career in public service, policy scholarship, and journalism.  He served on the White House domestic-policy staff under President George W. Bush and as the executive director of The President's Council on Bioethics.  His latest book, The Great Debate:  Edmund Burke, Thomas Paine, and the Birth of Right and Left, will be published later this year.

"Yuval Levin is an outstanding public intellectual," according to Bradley Foundation president and chief executive officer Michael W. Grebe.  "His research and writing as well as his editorship of National Affairs have served as a guide to public policy challenges facing the country."

The selection was based on nominations solicited from more than 200 prominent individuals across the country and chosen by the Bradley Prizes Selection Committee.

"Through the Bradley Prizes, we recognize individuals like Yuval Levin whose accomplishments strengthen American institutions, in hopes that others will strive for excellence in their respective fields," Grebe said.
