Happy Birthday, John McClaughry!

Join us all in wishing EAI founder John McClaughry a happy 80th birthday!


Nobody in Vermont has worked harder for the cause of liberty than John, who in his career worked as a policy advisor for President Ronald Reagan, served as a member of the Vermont House of Representatives and of the Senate, and ran for governor against Howard Dean. Following that campaign, John founded the Ethan Allen Institute in 1993. He has dedicated his life to protecting, upholding, and passing on the principles that truly make our country and our communities great. Thanks, and warmest wishes for many more years of you doing what you do best.

In lieu of a gift, please consider a contribution to the Ethan Allen Institute.
