Leonard Liggio

In 2013, Atlas is joining with Liberty Fund and the Earhart Foundation to celebrate the living legacy of Leonard P. Liggio along with his 80th birthday.

As a scholar, as a gentlemen, and – perhaps most of all – as a behind-the-scenes builder of the freedom movement, Leonard sets an inspiring example for us to emulate.

To ensure that the new freedom champions of today (and tomorrow) appreciate Leonard’s many contributions, Atlas is establishing a new Liggio Lecture Series as a central part of its annual Atlas Liberty Forum, one of the freedom movement’s must-attend international events.

The Inaugural Liggio Lecture was given by Professor James Otteson of Wake Forest University during the Atlas Liberty Forum in New York City on November 13-14, 2013. Click here to read the text of his speech.

This website, developed by Leonard’s colleagues at Atlas, serves as an online portfolio of his work, and a location where well-wishers can post tributes to Leonard in the spirit of those collected 15 years ago in a the collection, Born on the 5th of July (opens as a 10 MB pdf file), on the occasion of Leonard’s 65th birthday.
