TDR on NRO

National Review national political reporter John Miller notes that The Dartmouth Review, through the Collegiate Network, has been one of the recipients of support from the soon-to-be-defunct John M. Olin Foundation.

In his retrospective on the philanthropic organization, Miller writes that "the foundation is closing down, according to the wishes of its benefactor, the industrialist John M. Olin (1892-1982). He stipulated that rather than exist in perpetuity, his foundation would spend all of its assets within a generation of his death."

Other recipients of the foundation's largesse over the years include the law-and-economics programs at several leading universities, the Federalist Society, and cultural critics Allan Bloom, Francis Fukuyama, and former TDR editor-in-chief Dinesh D'Souza '83.

It is worth mentioning that TDR was a direct recipient of funding from the Olin foundation long before it was associated with the Collegiate Network. As the note from John Olin on my desk attests he had high hopes for the Review and I would like to think that we have not disappointed him.
