Who Is Harry Singer?
Most people have never heard of Harry Singer. He wasn't a famous politician, a philanthropic industrialist, a creative artist, a martyred preacher or a great inventor-humanitarian. Harry Singer was a common man.
Harry could have been your uncle, your brother-in-law, your next door neighbor. He had no lust for power, no great ambitions. He was just a good, kind, quiet man with a keen sense of justice who would jump in when he felt something was wrong. Harry was an egalitarian who showed respect for all men and who was respected in return.
It is fitting that a foundation dedicated to encouraging the common man's participation in public policy decisions should be named after Harry. For it is to the Harry Singers of a new generation that we must look if we are to keep America competitive and strong in the world of the twenty-first century.
The Harry Singer Foundation came into being because the descendants of this humble egalitarian believe today what President Woodrow Wilson said back in 1912; over a century ago.
"Every country is renewed out of the unknown ranks and not out of the ranks of those already famous and powerful and in control." For more info, go to: http://www.singerfoundation.org/?m=content&i=2
