Robert A. Goldwin, RIP

Constitutional scholar Bob Goldwin died yesterday after a brief illness.  His lengthy career included a Deanship of St. John's College and service in the Ford Administration, in the White House, DOD, and NATO.  He may be best known to an older generation of students as editor of a series of books featuring a diverse array of viewpoints, stemming from Kenyon College's public affairs conference series.  Here are books from his AEI series.  These works often introduced young Straussian scholars to a growing audience of appreciative students.  We should honor his memory with our own scholarship and public service.

Essays from Goldwyn's editorship of those books (the Kenyon and AEI series) are still read by some of my students today.

His book From Parchment to Power is a good account of the Bill of Rights.

He will be missed. RIP.
