EPPC Celebrates Ed Whelan’s 20 Years

March 22, 2024

March 22, 2024 marks Ed Whelan’s 20th anniversary at EPPC. Ed joined EPPC as its President in March 2004 and served in that capacity until 2021. On stepping down as President, he was named EPPC Distinguished Senior Fellow and was awarded EPPC’s new Antonin Scalia Chair in Constitutional Studies.

EPPC President Ryan Anderson hailed Ed’s twenty years at EPPC:

Ed Whelan’s tenure at EPPC is nothing short of remarkable. No one is a more reliable or sought-after Court watcher and commentator than Ed. His work directly resulted in the reshaping of the composition of our judiciary, with the overturning of Roe as perhaps his crowning accomplishment. He did all of this while for seventeen years he led EPPC as president. Taking EPPC from strength to strength, he built the institution with the best thinkers on the social and moral questions confronting our nation, garnering EPPC the rich reputation it rightly deserves.
