ON-Lion Letter
Irving Kristol, who passed away in September, is widely considered to be the founder of American neoconservatism.  He was the managing editor of Commentary magazine from 1947 to 1952 and the co-founder of Encounter magazine.  After eight years as executive vice president of Basic Books, he then became a professor of social thought at the New York University.  In 1965, he co-founded The Public Interest magazine.

The new National Affairs magazine hosts the complete archives of The Public Interest, on which it is modeled.  National Affairs has posted all of Kristol's impressive and influential contributions to The Public Interest, from its first issue to the last in 2005, online.  Their subject matters range from troublesome intellectuals to capitalism and "the free society" to populism and taxes.

Kristol worked with or for several organizations substantially supported by The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee -- including, among others, Commentary, The Public Interest, and the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research, of which he was a senior fellow emeritus.  Bradley also supports National Affairs.
