Dr. Charles Krauthammer: TFAS Mourns the Loss of a Remarkable Thinker and Friend

//////////////////////

The Fund for American Studies (TFAS) joins with countless others in mourning the passing of Dr. Charles Krauthammer, one of the towering intellects of our era.

TFAS President Roger Ream (ICPES 76) and family, including TFAS alumna Alanna Ream (AIPES 07) and wife Mary Kay Ream, talk with Dr. Krauthammer following his remarks at the 2010 TFAS Annual Conference.

Charles was a supporter and longtime friend of TFAS. In 2005, he received our highest honor, the Walter Judd Freedom Award. In 2010, he was the keynote speaker at our annual conference, discussing “American Exceptionalism in the Age of Obama.” In 2011, he was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award bestowed by our Robert Novak Journalism Fellowship Program.

As a thinker, commentator, writer and analyst, Charles Krauthammer was virtually without peer. He was a model for how debate, discussion and civil discourse should be conducted. His journalism was incisive, persuasive and effective. He was admired and respected not merely by those who agreed with him, but also by his ideological opponents, which speaks volumes about his persona and depth of character.

We are utterly unique as a nation, being the only nation on earth founded not on race, bloodlines, even geography and history. We are a nation founded on an idea and that is new in human history.” – Dr. Charles Krauthammer, 2010 TFAS Annual Conference

The U.S. and the world have lost a giant among the sages who ponder and endeavor to interpret the great issues of the modern age. All of us at TFAS extend our condolences to the Krauthammer family upon the passing of this remarkable, incomparable man.
