Biographical Note

Clarence Manion was the Dean of Notre Dame School of Law from 1941-1952. The Manion Forum was a radio program he broadcasted from 1954-1979. In 1953, Manion was appointed Chairman of the Commission on Intergovernmental Relations by President Eisenhower. The group was to study the federal government’s relationship to the states particularly in fiscal matters, in 1954 Manion resigned at the request of the president. This marked the transition in his political views, where he went from a registered Democrat to a leading voice for political conservatism. The Manion Forum originally was commentaries by Manion, but later changed to include guest speakers and interviews.
