  • Edwin Meese III on the Death of James Q. Wilson

    “Jim Wilson was one of America’s greatest thinkers, scholars, and patriots, as well as a good friend. He had a major influence on the modernization of policing in our nation and was also one of the most profound writers on moral philosophy. His teaching at several institutions inspired young Americans and provided a series of outstanding writings, which will be invaluable for years to come. Jim’s work was particularly valued by former President Reagan who had appointed  him to the President’s Commission on Violent Crime in 1981. The whole country is in debt to him for all of his contributions to make this a better land.”

    Mr. Meese holds the Ronald Reagan Distinguished Chair in Public Policy at The Heritage Foundation and was formerly the Attorney General of the United States.
