Britt Beemer attended the TFAS Engalitcheff Institute on Comparative Political and Economic Systems (ICPES in 1971, when it was referred to as the Charles Edison Youth Fund. “When I think of what I learned that summer, I am always reminded of Dr. Carey’s lectures on The Federalist Papers and that period of America’s founding. His lectures created a greater thirst for learning much more about this crucial period of America’s independence.”
During his summer with TFAS, Beemer interned at the Republican National Committee. At the RNC he was able to delve into many hands-on projects.
I feel it is important to support those who supported me in my crucial learning years. America needs us to stay with our conservative principles and that is what I have tried to teach my two daughters.”
“The last week I was an intern at the RNC, there was a dialogue among the young conservatives on staff about what we could do to prevent President Nixon from dropping Spiro Agnew from the ticket. We started the ‘Keep Our Veep’ campaign and I called John Wayne to see if he would be willing to sign a fundraising letter, which he enthusiastically agreed to do. That letter was the most successful direct mail funding piece of its time,” said Beemer.
After completing his time at TFAS, Beemer graduated from Northwest Missouri State University, and later earned a master’s degree from Indiana State University. Beemer worked for Congressman Bill Scherle of Iowa. He later directed fourteen U.S. Senate races, of which he won twelve.
In 1979, Beemer founded America’s Research Group, a consumer behavior research firm working with companies of all sizes. He has published three best-selling books on marketing, “Predatory Marketing,” “It Takes a Prophet to Make a Profit,” and “The Customer Rules.” He has also published two Christian books, “Already Gone” and “Already Compromised.”
Beemer recently reconnected with The Fund for American Studies and began supporting TFAS’s work. “I feel it is important to support those who supported me in my crucial learning years. America needs us to stay with our conservative principles and that is what I have tried to teach my two daughters, ages 13 and 17,” said Beemer. “My wife and I adopted our two girls from China so we can tell you firsthand what transpires in a Communist, godless country.”
“A friend asked me last week if I planned to slow down,” said Beemer. “I responded, ‘If you can tell me how much money I will need to get my girls through college and probably graduate school, I will give you a time when I will slow down.'”
“Until then,” he adds, “If you fly Delta, I am the guy in first class wearing a suit, tie and pocket square!”
