Conservative Literary Lion M. Stanton Evans Remembered

Modern American conservative journalism is full of colorful, witty writers and commentators, spanning from William F. Buckley to Newsmax’s very own John Gizzi, and from Tucker Carlson to Newsmax’s Steve Cortes and Sean Spicer. 

However, one of the heroes in conservative journalism, M. Stanton “Stan” Evans (July 20, 1934 – March 3, 2015), has been forgotten by many younger conservative journalists entering the profession. Steven F. Hawyard, the author of the new book “M. Stanton Evans: Conservative Wit, Apostle of Freedom,” gives a moving and entertaining biography of a titan within conservative journalism throughout the 20th century.

When asked to give a brief overview of who Evans was, Hayward described him as “one of the key figures in the modern conservative movement that took shape in the 1950s, both on the level of theory in forming what ideas were important to conservatives, but also in practice, because he was in the middle of a lot of organizational efforts to build up and bring the conservative movement to a prominent position over the period of three decades.”
