Happy Birthday Ralph!

David Gordon writes:
Today is Ralph Raico’s seventy-ninth birthday. He is the greatest living historian of classical liberalism and a leading libertarian theorist. He was a member of Murray Rothbard’s legendary Circle Bastiat and one of Murray’s closest friends. Ralph has been my friend for more than thirty-five years, and his learning, analytical abilities, and devotion to liberty have always inspired me. He is also extremely funny and a master of the sarcastic put-down. He once said to me, “What’s wrong with you? I’m not as stupid as you look.”
If you haven't had the time to listen to Professor Raico's American History Documentary - The World at War, (Two part series) find the time.




  1. I've listened to every lecture of Mr. Raico's that I could find. Every one of them informative, riveting, and with a good dose of humor. His knowledge of history and language is astounding. A very Happy Birthday to him.

  2. Happy B'Day Dr. Raico.
    He is a terrific writer and educator.

  3. Robert,

    He smokes and you provided no warning. No warning. How dare you!
