This is the FEE of my graduate student days. I first visited FEE a few years earlier when I was an undergraduate student at Grove City College, and that first visit had a huge impact on me. I came back committed to devour all the classics in the free market tradition and to learn as much as I could and to become an articulate spokesman of the philosophy.
There are 3 major organizations within the libertarian intellectual movement which I value my association with more than any others (outside of my own institutional home) and they are FEE, IHS and Liberty Fund. To me these organizations focus on 3 distinct moments within the intellectual development of individuals. FEE remains the best entry point for young people to learn the basic principles of the philosophy, politics and economics (and history) of libertarianism. IHS is able to take these young people and work with them as advanced undergraduates and as graduate students. And Liberty Fund represents the mature conversation among libertarian professional intellectuals. Obviously, all 3 organizations cross those boundaries at various times and with different audiences --- as they should. But to my mind, this is where they primarily fit and where they do such an amazing job for good in our intellectual culture.
