Davidson College disinvites renowned anti-government history professor Burton Folsom for being ‘not academic enough’

Buton Folsom is one of America’s premier historians of ingenuity, economics and industry. His books and peer-reviewed articles are read widely.

But Folsom takes a decidedly different perspective from most other humanities and social-science professors. His works often criticize regulation and government control.

Recently a student group at government-supporting Davidson College (in North Carolina) arranged to have Professor Folsom (who teaches at Michigan’s Hillsdale College) speak at the North Carolina campus.

But pro-government extremist college authorities overruled the student group. They say Burton Folsom is not ‘academic’ enough to be featured at Davidson College’s main venue.
