This is the first in a series of programs that The Heritage Foundation is organizing around the legacy of conservative figures and their continuing relevance to U.S. China policy. Dr. Walter Judd was a Christian missionary in China, a medical doctor, a Republican Congressman from Minnesota (1943-1963) and a leader in America’s anti-communist movement until he passed away in 1994. Dr. Judd’s cause was American interest in Chinese liberty. It was a common theme throughout his extraordinary career from barnstorming America out of its 1930s isolationism to his founding of The Committee for a Free China to his unstinting support for the Republic of China on Taiwan. Join us as we discuss the continuing relevance of that cause to current events.
