About the Author
W. Cleon Skousen was a world renowned teacher, lecturer and scholar for more than 60 years. Born in Raymond, Alberta, Canada on January 20, 1913, Dr. Skousen s growing up years were spent in Canada, Mexico, and California.
He attended college at the San Bernardino Junior College where he was elected Student Body President.
In 1934 he went to law school at George Washington University in Washington DC, where he earned his Juris Doctorate and was admitted to practice law in the District of Columbia. At this same time he was employed with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
Dr. Skousen married Jewel Pitcher of San Bernardino, California, in August 1936. During their 69 years of marriage, they raised eight children and became the grandparents of 50 grandchildren and more than 90 great-grandchildren.
Dr. Skousen served the FBI for 16 years (1935-1951), and worked closely with J. Edgar Hoover including a hot-spot stint as the director of communications. As a prolific writer and speaker, he wrote his national best seller, The Naked Communist and later became the editor of the nation s leading police magazine, Law And Order. In 1960 he began a speaking tour around the country addressing the important political issues facing America at that time. During this period, he averaged 300 speeches a year.
In 1972 Dr. Skousen organized a non-profit educational foundation named The Freemen Institute. Later changed to The National Center for Constitutional Studies (NCCS), Dr. Skousen and his staff became the nation s leading organization in teaching students and legislators seminars on the Founding Fathers and the U.S. Constitution. His books The Making of America and The 5,000 Year Leap have been used nation-wide to educate students on the original intent of the Founding Fathers.
His many books and recordings addressed diverse subjects ranging from the raising of boys, to the principles of good government, to prophetic history. Dr. Skousen accumulated a wealth of knowledge and optimism information that he called the diamond dust of exciting history, natural law and eternal principles of hope. These principles he painstakingly distilled into the pages of over 40 books and pamphlets, to be shared in an exciting and inspirational manner. This is what made him so popular with audiences of millions around the world. --This text refers to the Kindle Edition edition.
