On the evening of 22 October, Professor Ted Eismeier inaugurated the Publius Society at the headquarters of the AHI. Nine professors and about thirty students gathered to discuss the theory and practice of the unitary president. Student leaders broke the attendants into two groups. The discussion, fortified by dessert and refreshments, proved intensive and stimulating, just what the founders of the AHI had envisioned in creating the Institute. They thank Professor Eismeier for his leadership in organizing the event and the student participants who, among other things, sparked a lively discussion of Federalist Papers #69-74
The Publius Society will hold its second meeting at the AHI on 18 November.
