The Steamboat Institute Launches New Academic Fellowship Named After Acclaimed Journalist Tony Blankley On October 29, 2013 In Washington, D.C.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Steamboat Institute, a leading non-profit conservative organization based in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, launched a new academic fellowship, "The Tony Blankley Chair for Public Policy and American Exceptionalism," named after the late conservative columnist and pundit, Tony Blankley. Blankley served as conference moderator for The Steamboat Institute's annual Freedom Conference from 2009 through 2011.

" Tony Blankley firmly believed that unless liberty was cherished and protected, it could be extinguished in a single generation. We hope to carry on his mission and communicate his ideals to the next generation so that his principles can be preserved for years to come," said Jennifer Schubert-Akin,chairman of The Steamboat Institute

"Tony is fondly remembered as 'The Face of The Steamboat Institute,' because of the captivating role he played as moderator, particularly during televised segments of the conference, and the compelling way he examined the large issues facing our nation today," said Rick Akin, vice chairman.

The Tony Blankley Chair was officially launched on October 29, 2013 during a reception hosted by The Steamboat Institute at the Capitol Hill Club with the support of many of the biggest names in the conservative movement.  Former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Newt Gingrich co-chaired the event, with his wife, Callista Gingrich, and Tom McDevitt, chairman of The Washington Times .

Blankley served as press secretary under Gingrich, and was instrumental in his 1994 campaign platform, the Contract with America. Blankley also was a regular panelist on The McLaughlin Group, appearing frequently on various shows and radio programs. He also served as executive vice president for public affairs in Edelman's Washington office.

"This fellowship is a great idea and exactly the right tribute to Tony, which the Gingrich Foundation is proud to support. Tony loved the continuity and he loved the idea that each generation creates an opportunity for the next," said Gingrich.
