Happy 75th birthday to Walter Grinder!!!
Walter E. Grinder turns 75 years old today. He is the former CEO of the Institute for Humane Studies and President Emeritus of the Institute for Civil Society. He has been a potent force in spreading libertarian ideas through his writing and even more so through his mentoring of young scholars and his ability to make connections across disciplines. Those whose lives he has affected include several of the contributors to the Free Banking blog. Tributes to Walter are appearing here and on other sites today; send us a link if you see one on another site. Happy birthday, and many thanks, Walter!
