The Bradley Prize annually recognizes up to four individuals of extraordinary talent and dedication who have made contributions in areas consistent with the mission of the Milwaukee-based Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation. These include “preserving and defending the tradition of free representative government and private enterprise that has enabled the American nation and, in a larger sense, the entire Western world to flourish intellectually and economically.”

“Dr. Berkowitz, one of our nation’s leading public intellectuals, advocates for the principles of freedom through his writings on conservatism, liberal education, national security and the Middle East,” says Richard Graber, president and CEO of the Bradley Foundation.

“Through the Bradley Prizes, we recognize individuals like Dr. Berkowitz, whose lifelong commitment to promoting liberty sets an example for others to follow,” adds Graber.

At Hoover, Berkowitz is a member of the Military History/Contemporary Conflict Working Group. In addition, he serves as dean of students for the Hertog Political Studies Program and for the Public Interest Fellowship, and teaches for the Tikvah Fund in the United States and in Israel.

“Peter has dedicated his career to advancing the ideals of constitutional government, freedom and national security – the same principles that guide the Bradley Foundation,” according to Tom Gilligan, director of the Hoover Institution. “I can’t think of a more deserving recipient of this esteemed honor.”
