John Jay was one of the great architects of American liberty. As an author of the Federalist Papers, he played a critical role in winning ratification of the Constitution. As a leading diplomat, he helped to secure the place of the United States in the community of nations. As the first Chief Justice of the United States, he set an example of judicial probity. I'm delighted that Alan Crippen has named his new institute in honor of this exemplary American statesman. In his devotion to our nation's founding ideals, and to their propagation today, Crippen himself is a worthy heir to the tradition of Chief Justice Jay. I have no doubt that the John Jay Institute will help many of our most gifted young people more fully to understand and appreciate "the blessings of liberty" bequeathed to us by America's founding fathers."
