A birthday tribute.

Essential though the work of the Olin Foundation was, there is another conservative institution celebrating a milestone this month: we mean National Review, founded by William F. Buckley Jr. in 1955, fifty years ago this month. Later in this issue, Jeffrey Hart, a long-time senior editor at NR, offers some reminiscences about the early years of the magazine. We would simply like to add our voice to the chorus of congratulation that has surrounded Mr. Buckley and his magazine these past weeks. In the very first issue of National Review, Mr. Buckley famously wrote that one task of the magazine was "to stand athwart history yelling Stop!" What a pleasing irony, then, that his inaugural interdiction has started so many good things. Happy Birthday!
