TFAS Mourns Loss of Former Trustee Bruce Herschensohn

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

The Fund for American Studies is mourning the loss of former trustee and dear friend Bruce Herschensohn, who passed away on November 30.

A television and radio political commentator for more than two decades, Herschensohn began his own motion picture company following his service in the United States Air Force.

He was the 1992 Republican nominee for the United States Senate in California and – while winning more than one million votes more than the national ticket of the Party ­and running on honest principles – was sadly defeated. Herschensohn taught “The World Leadership Role of the United States” at the Pepperdine University School of Public Policy.

Herschensohn was a longtime friend of TFAS, having served on the Board of Trustees in its early days, from 1973-76, when the organization was named the Charles Edison Memorial Youth Fund.

TFAS Chairman Randal C. Teague called Herschensohn a man with “astounding brilliance.”

“He was such a very special person with a personality that attracted great interest in his thoughts, analyses, activities, and everything,” Teague said. “He will be truly missed.”

Former trustee and close friend to Herschensohn, Arnold Steinberg remembered him as a man of “great integrity and principle, a patriot in every sense, and a creative genius.”
