The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee has announced that one of four 2008 Bradley Prizes will be awarded to Alan Charles Kors, a University of Pennsylvania history professor and co-founder of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, of which he is now chairman emeritus.

Kors 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 Alan Charles Kors not only for his original scholarship in European intellectual history, but also for his defense of free speech as well," according to Bradley president and chief executive officer Michael W. Grebe.

Earlier this year, Kors received the Jeane Jordan Kirkpatrick Academic Freedom Award during 35th annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C.  His many books include The Shadow University:  The Betrayal of Liberty on America's Campuses, which he co-authored, and he served on the National Council for the Humanities.

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