Host: The Heritage Foundation. Most people know about Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan, but who knows about Holmes Tuttle, Henry Regnery, and Antony Fisher? Yet it was devoted conservatives like them – and dozens of others – who paved the way for leaders like Goldwater and Reagan by financing and helping to create a conservative movement of ideas and people. In Funding Fathers, authors Ron Robinson and Nicole Hoplin tell the behind-the-scenes stories of the men and women who made the conservative movement the giant force it is today. Money matters, especially in politics. But it is not the size of the donation that counts, it is the impact it makes. Funding Fathers shows how the unsung heroes of the conservative movement not only influenced the past, but also continue to shape the future.
