Dr. F. A. “Baldy” Harper, a former Cornell University economics professor, founded the Institute for Humane Studies in 1961. The Institute for Humane Studies (IHS) is a non-profit libertarian organization that works with students and academics around the country. Fairfax County, Virginia’s George Mason Institution is a public research university. IHS was based in Menlo Park, California, for many years before moving to Fairfax, Virginia, in 1985 and became linked with George Mason University (GMU). GMU has created a culture that promotes intellectual variety and freedom of opinion and speech, and IHS is delighted to be a part of it.
