Fred Simoons: Longtime Reader of ISI Publications. Professor Fred Simoons has read ISI publications since the 1950s and has been an especially loyal reader of the Intercollegiate Review. His studies in cultural geography took him around the world, which increased both his appreciation for the Western tradition and his alarm that colleges and universities were increasingly abandoning that tradition for an intellectually flaccid political correctness.
Mimi Prentice: Patron of the ISI Honors Program. Mrs. Mimi Prentice had a long and interesting life—first as a stage performer and then as wife to Spelman Prentice, grandson of John D. Rockefeller.
But she didn’t begin supporting ISI until 2000. After her husband’s death, she was cleaning out his study and came across numerous ISI journals, books, and materials. She then encouraged Spelman’s friends and family to make memorial donations to ISI, and in the process learned a great deal herself about ISI and its work to educate for liberty.
Ambassador Patricia Herbold: Principled Leader with a Passion to Reach the Next Generation. ISI’s Ambassador Patricia L. Herbold Endowment Fund represents a powerful way to cultivate future leaders, giving the most promising college students the necessary grounding in foundational principles and practical wisdom.
Neil Nobel: Weaver Fellow and Financial Adviser. ISI and the foundations of liberty have been important to Neil Nobel since his undergraduate years at Arizona State University, where he was president of ASU's Young Americans for Freedom.
In graduate school, Neil received a Richard M. Weaver Graduate Fellowship from ISI. As a financial planner in the Phoenix area, he advised local entrepreneur William McMeekin--whom he knew cared about the principles of liberty--to set up a trust supporting ISI's graduate fellowship program and other important causes.
