The Hoover Institution's annual postdoctoral W. Glenn Campbell and Rita Ricardo-Campbell National Fellows have been named for the 2006-07 academic year. Since the program was established 34 years ago, more than 400 fellowships have been awarded. Fellows use the release time from teaching to advance their professional careers by completing an original, significant research project at the institution.

Institution Deputy Director David Brady, assisted by Joy Kelley, administers the program, which is named in honor of Glenn Campbell, the late director of the institution, and his widow, Rita Ricardo-Campbell, who is a senior fellow there.
