The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee has announced that one of the four 2015 Bradley Prizes will be presented to Larry P. Arnn, the president of Hillsdale College.

The Bradley Prize will be awarded to Arnn at a ceremony to be held at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, June 3.  Each award carries a stipend of $250,000.

Arnn has served as Hillsdale's president since 2000.  From 1985 to 2000, he was president of The Claremont Institute for the Study of Statesmanship & Political Philosophy.  Earlier, he was director of research for Bradley Prize recipient Sir Martin Gilbert, the authorized biographer of Sir Winston Churchill. 

Arnn is the author of Liberty and Learning:  The Evolution of American Education, The Founder's Key: The Divine and Natural Connection between the Declaration and the Constitution and What We Risk by Losing It, and the forthcoming Churchill's Trial:  Winston Churchill and the Salvation of Free Government.

“Dr. Arnn is dedicated to traditional academic purpose,” noted Michael W. Grebe, president and chief executive officer of the Bradley Foundation.  "He has helped to build Hillsdale College into the model of classical liberal arts education.  His scholarship and leadership throughout the years deserve recognition."

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

"Through the Bradley Prizes, we recognize individuals like Dr. Arnn whose accomplishments strengthen American institutions, with the hope that others will strive for excellence in their respective fields,” Grebe said.
