The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee has announced that one of four 2016 Bradley Prizes will be presented to Charles Murray, the W.H. Brady Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C.  Murray has authored a number of influential books, most recently including Coming Apart.  He holds a B.A. in history from Harvard University and a Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The Bradley Prize will be awarded to Murray at a ceremony to be held at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington on Wednesday, June 15.  Each award carries a stipend of $250,000.

"For several decades, Charles Murray has been an intellectual giant," Bradley Foundation president and chief executive officer Michael W. Grebe said.  "His groundbreaking research has sparked debate and launched reform in a number of fields including welfare reform."

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

"Charles Murray is a preeminent social scientist who has made monumental contributions to his chosen field," Grebe said.  "Through the Bradley Prizes, we recognize individuals like Dr. Murray, with the hope that others will strive for excellence in their respective fields."
