American Enterprise Institute Announces the Beth and Ravenel Curry Chair in Free Enterprise
For Immediate Release: Washington, DC, May 14, 2013
 
The American Enterprise Institute (AEI) announced today the creation of the Beth and Ravenel Curry Chair in Free Enterprise. This chair, made possible by a $3 million gift from Beth and Ravenel Curry, founders of Eagle Capital Management LLC, will support the research of a senior AEI scholar who is dedicated to the study of earned success and the morality of free enterprise. AEI president Arthur C. Brooks will be the first scholar to hold the chair.
 
"I am humbled by the Currys’ commitment to advancing free enterprise and by their incredible generosity," said Brooks. "They have placed the highest level of confidence and trust in the work of AEI, and we will work to make them proud of their investment. This gift facilitates the study of free enterprise as a means to human flourishing and thus, as a moral imperative of our society."
 
Beth and Ravenel Curry said, "This gift will bring both increased awareness and dedicated support to work that is at the core of our beliefs and central to AEI’s 75-year-old mission. We are honored to be a part of this institution and happy to play a role in advancing our nation’s principles of freedom, opportunity, and enterprise."
 
Brooks became the president of AEI on January 1, 2009. Previously, he was the Louis A. Bantle Professor of Business and Government at Syracuse University. He has published more than 60 academic journal articles and 10 books, including the 2012 New York Times bestseller "The Road to Freedom: How to Win the Fight for Free Enterprise" and the graduate business textbook "Social Entrepreneurship." He holds a PhD in public policy from the Rand Graduate School.
 
Ravenel Curry III is a member of the board of trustees at AEI. He is a founder and chief investment officer of Eagle Capital Management LLC, where Beth Curry serves as managing director.
