Arnold Beichman, 1913-2010

One of the great pleasures of being affiliated with the Hoover Institution is the opportunity to be near those who literally changed the course of history (George Shultz, the late Edward Teller), as well as remarkable men and women who embodied so much of the drama and change this world has witnessed this past century.

One such person was Arnold Beichman, a reporter, columnist, and Hoover research fellow — and an unwavering voice against the evils of communism during the darkest days of the Cold War.

Arnold passed away yesterday in Pasadena. He was 96. 

John Podhoretz, editor of Commentary, wrote this moving tribute to Arnold. I’ll let his words do the talking.
