by Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

As the tributes flow in and we prepare to remember Stan Evans at 1:30 pm today and tomorrow, March 13, at a memorial event in his honor at 11:00 am at the Heritage Foundation, one important aspect of Stan's life has been missed in the many tributes that have come forth since his passing. And that is at what a young age Stan began his remarkable career and undertook some of his most important work.

FLASH: M. Stanton Evans Author of the Sharon Statement Passes Away At Age 80

M. Stanton Evans, author of the Sharon Statement, newspaper editor and invesitgative reporter and biographer of Senator Joseph McCarthy and other important works on the influence of communism in America has died in his 81st year. Chairman Richard A. Viguerie issued a brief statement memorializing his long-time friend saying, "On a short list of the 4-5 most important heroes of the conservative movement, Stan Evans is there alongside of Buckley, Goldwater and Helms." The Sharon Statement, the orginal organizing statement of Young Americans for Freedom written by M. Stanton Evans, remains, fifty-five years after it was signed at William F. Buckley Jr.'s home in Sharon, Connecticut, perhaps the most recognized summary of the central ideas of modern American conservatism. Click here for more on the Sharon Statement.
