The Tony Blankley Chair for Public Policy and American Exceptionalism honors the memory of our dear friend Tony Blankley. A master journalist and communicator, as well as the Moderator of our first three Freedom Conferences, Tony’s grasp of public policy, the proper role of government, and the concept of American Exceptionalism is beyond dispute. It is our intention to see that his ideals are preserved and expounded through the first-ever academic Chair to foster academic excellence at the Steamboat Institute.
