Example text

The Institute, freed from the shackles of its university ties and the restrictions that had imposed, and now in the midst of the Viet Nam war, actually saw its budget increase for a time, largely on the basis of new contract research. The money also came in from conservative foundations and from the sale of its books. Led by the energetic and prolific Pfaltzgraff, the number of research products (books, papers, monographs) increased during the early 1970s. New research associates, mainly from the ranks of the Penn faculty and graduate students—quite a number of whom made a considerable splash when they subsequently moved to Washington—added to FPRI’s luster.

I think S-H wrote it thinking his life, at age 62, was effectively over at that time. He was discredited for his participation in the disastrous Goldwater campaign, his ideas were more and more under attack and seen as both old-fashioned and dangerous, he was more and more isolated in the Penn political science department, and his beloved institute, FPRI, was under investigation by the university, pressured by 20 O Chapter Two the prevailing Viet Nam era winds on campus, for its involvement in secret (CIA and Department of Defense) research.

Kintner was a political conservative and a hard-line cold warrior who lacked S-H’s finesse, subtlety, and broader, more worldly understanding. In his conversation he was often curt, tough, and brief, much more in accord with his early military background than with his later academic career. Despite his advanced degrees from Georgetown and his quite respectable publications record (The Front Is Everywhere, various co-authored books through FPRI), Kintner never gained the academic rapport with students and faculty colleagues that S-H enjoyed and that served the latter as a shield against the sometime sniping and criticism of his political views.
