The Apothecary Welcomes Austin Bramwell

Broadening our footprint to cover general politics and culture.

It gives me great pleasure to welcome Austin Bramwell to The Apothecary. I’ve known Austin for 14 years, since our time together in the Conservative Party of the Yale Political Union.

Austin has written for The Weekly Standard, National Review, First Things, Critical Review, Modern Age, The University Bookman, and other publications. The fiftieth anniversary retrospective on God and Man at Yale that he wrote for Intercollegiate Review is now the preface to the latest edition of William F. Buckley’s famous book. Austin is a frequent contributor to The American Conservative magazine and blogs these days at The League of Ordinary Gentlemen, FrumForum and The American Conservative's group blog, @TAC. Here’s a fun old piece from the New York Times that profiles him and a number of other up-and-coming young conservatives.

Austin and I disagree on quite a bit, and the presence of his work here doesn’t mean that I endorse his views (and vice-versa). But what I value about Austin is that he is a provocative, independent thinker. (As you can see from the above photo, he is also a provocative dresser.) Like me, he has a non-political day job—in his case, as a practicing lawyer in New York City—and I think his intellectual temperament reflects that. Austin tends to write about cultural issues; the conservative movement; and general politics.

I am going to archive all of Austin’s old material on this website. His articles will be logged in at the date of their original posting. For example, a piece originally posted in October 2008 will appear as such at The Apothecary. To search through Austin’s work, simply click on the “Austin Bramwell” tag on the left-hand column of this page (in the “Articles Sorted by Topic” section).

I hope that Bramwell fans everywhere will enjoy being able to find all of his work in one place.
