Heritage Foundation scholar and former Attorney General Edwin Meese will be awarded one of this year’s four prestigious Bradley Prizes, the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation announced today.
Meese, the chairman of Heritage’s Center for Legal and Judicial Studies, has been an outspoken advocate for a common-sense understanding of the Constitution. A close friend of Ronald Reagan’s dating from when Reagan served as California’s governor, Meese now serves as Heritage’s Ronald Reagan Distinguished Fellow in Public Policy.
Here’s more from the Bradley Foundation press release:
“Ed Meese has been an invaluable public servant,” said Michael W. Grebe, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Bradley Foundation. “His entire career has involved upholding the rule of law and making the nation more secure.”…
“Through the Bradley Prizes, we recognize individuals like Ed Meese who have made outstanding contributions, in hopes that others will strive for excellence in their respective fields,” said Mr. Grebe.
Heritage president Ed Feulner was also awarded a Bradley Prize this year.
