Yesterday, the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation announced that Dr. Alan Charles Kors, a history professor at the University of Pennsylvania, will be the recipient of a 2008 Bradley Prize.  The award carries a stipend of $250,000 and will be awarded on June 4th in Washington, D.C.

Dr. Kors has been a key activist for free speech and against the politically correct climate that often dominates campus life.  His book, The Shadow University, is one of my favorite books and should be required reading on campus.

Kathryn Lopez has more details on the award over at National Review Online.  Congratulations, Dr. Kors!
