The Second Annual Carl B. Menges Colloquium

In recognition of the centrality of the idea and institution of property to civilized life, the Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization, in conjunction with the Simon Graduate School of Business at the University of Rochester, devoted the AHI’s second annual Carl B. Menges Colloquium to “Property Rights.” This three-day event, held 30 April-May 2 at the Turning Stone Resort & Casino in Verona, New York, brought together in six sessions over two days  dozens of scholars, students, and informed citizens for intensive conversation on a range of themes.
