Prolific historian, author, and social critic Gertrude Himmelfarb (1922-2019) leaves behind a legacy of scholarship transcending time and place. Her insights into the past, such as her studies of Victorian England, help fashion a worldview for the present, one emphasizing virtue, truth-seeking, and humility.

AEI Senior Fellow Karlyn Bowman joins the podcast to memorialize Dr. Himmelfarb and discuss what lessons her life and works hold for future generations.

This lecture was originally delivered in October 2008.
