Featured article: Original Typed Draft of the Hospers Statement of Principles

Original Statement of Principles

By an extraordinary confluence of events, the Libertarian Party Historical Preservation Committee has come to be in possession of the original typed draft copy of the Statement of Principles as written by John Hospers. Originally, LPedia had housed a poor scan of this document from an unknown source and the location of the original had been unknown. This scan can be viewed below at the highest resolution that existed.

On August 4, 2017, Caryn Ann Harlos was randomly checking eBay for historical Libertarian Party items and saw that the original typed document was being offered for sale. Excitement ensued. Several known LP historical enthusiasts were bidding but it seemed at the last minute an unknown bidder snapped the item up at $430.00.

You Can Help!

Go here for a crash course on simple wiki editing. Don't be afraid to make a mess at first -- getting the information here is the hard part. You or someone else can tidy things up later.

Here are ways you can jump right in:

  • Check your state party article. Is it up to date? Do you know information about its history or some of its past chairs, officers, and the like that can be added? Do you have information on a topic listed on one of these lists? Can you think of things to add to one of those lists?
  • Find an identified needed article with a red link, click here for a list of missing but linked to articles, or create your article as shown below.
  • Refine an article stub into something more complete,
  • Update one of these articles,
  • Or simply tidy up an article in this category.

If you don't have access to any records, you can use the Internet Archive to search for information posted on the web since 1996. A hopefully helpful guide is located here.

You can decorate your user page with Wikipedia-style userboxes.
