LIBRARY MUSEUM MISSION STATEMENT

It is the mission of the Harry Browne Memorial Library & Museum to introduce the public to Harry Browne's political and investment books, speeches, radio shows, articles, seminars, and philosophy of life; educate the public about Libertarian philosophy; make accessible to the public Harry Browne's campaign material from his 1996 and 2000 U.S. Presidential campaigns; and make accessible to the public Harry Browne's web site. 

As the only facility of its kind, the Harry Browne Library Museum serves as a unique resource for anyone from school children to future Libertarian candidates. As an archive devoted to educating people about Harry Browne's work, Libertarian philosophy, Libertarian Presidential campaigns, and the advancement of free markets the Library Museum fills an informational void. The Library Museum fulfills this mission by serving as a physical educational facility and an electronic virtual library at www.HarryBrowne.org, in an effort to educate people in the United States and around the world.

LIBRARY MUSEUM GOALS

  • To introduce this and future generations to Harry Browne's Libertarian philosophy, investment philosophy, and philosophy of life.

  • To educate future Libertarian candidates.

  • To place a gravestone on Harry Browne's gravesite.

  • To continue to make accessible to the public Harry Browne's web site ~  www.HarryBrowne.org

LIBRARY

Upon Harry Browne's death, his widow, Pamela Wolfe Browne, donated much of his personal library to the Downsize DC Foundation of which he was a Co-founder and Director of Public Policy, to friends, and to charity. However, in addition to the exhibits, the Library Museum houses approximately 200 books and magazines. Some of the collection are political and economic books that Harry Browne collected over his lifetime and were particularly special to him; some are books that were gifts from the authors during the 1996 and 2000 U.S. Presidential campaigns with signed messages; and some are books written by Harry Browne which are either leather bound, published in a foreign language, or autographed to his wife, Pamela.

FUTURE LIBRARY MUSEUM PLANS

  • Preserve the collection of hundreds of 1996 and 2000 U.S. Presidential Libertarian campaign press clippings.

  • Preserve the 1996 and 2000 U.S. Presidential Libertarian campaign photographs.

  • Preserve Harry Browne's political and economic books, articles, speeches, radio broadcasts, and television broadcasts ~ including transferring reel-to-reel, audio, and video tapes to CDs and DVDs.

  • Purchase and place a gravestone on Harry Browne's gravesite.

DONATIONS/GIFTS TO THE LIBRARY MUSEUM

The library exhibits need to be more properly preserved ~ especially the photographs, newspaper clippings, and posters that are unprotected and aging. Also, the reel-to-reel, audio, and video tapes need to be transferred to CDs and DVDs. In addition, a gravestone needs to be purchased for Harry Browne's gravesite. Individual gifts are welcome and will be greatly appreciated.
