Edmund Burke (1729-1797) was a British statesman and political philosopher best known for his support of the American Revolution and denouncement of the French Revolution. Burke's work has become essential to understanding the early development of the United States. He is also considered the philosophical founder of modern conservatism.

Peter J. Stanlis (1920–2011) was Distinguished Professor of Humanities, Emeritus, at Rockford College and a world authority on Edmund Burke. He wrote several books about Burke, including Edmund Burke and the Natural Law which included an introduction by longtime friend and leading figure in the philosophical development of conservatism, Russell Kirk, who is most famous for The Conservative Mind. Stanlis was appointed to the National Council on the Humanities by President Reagan in 1982.
