The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee has announced that one of four 2008 Bradley Prizes will be awarded to Victor Davis Hanson.  Hanson is the Martin and Illie Anderson Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace at Stanford University in California.  He is also a nationally syndicated columnist and author.

Hanson will be presented the award during a ceremony at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, June 4.  Each award comes with a stipend of $250,000.

"The Bradley Foundation selected Dr. Hanson for his dedicated scholarship in ancient history, current affairs and individual freedom," according to Bradley president and chief executive officer Michael W. Grebe.  "In his lifelong work, Dr. Hanson has made substantial contributions to the understanding of Western Civilization and national security."

Hanson received the National Humanities Medal in 2007.  He has written or edited 17 books, including A War Like No Other:  How the Athenians and Spartans Fought the Peloponnesian War, Mexifornia:  The State of Becoming, and An Autumn of War:  What America Learned from September 11 and the War on Terrorism.  He is also the author of hundreds of scholarly papers, articles, op-ed pieces, and book reviews.

"Through the Bradley Prizes, we recognize individuals like Dr. Hanson who have made outstanding contributions and we hope to encourage others to strive for excellence in their respective fields," Grebe said.
