William F. Buckley, Jr., interviewed on Kirk and his contributions, May 1996.
Russell Kirk and William F. Buckley were leading writers and thinkers in the emerging U.S. conservative movement.

In this video from May 13, 1996, Donovan Reynolds interviews the late Mr. Buckley about Russell and his contributions. Russell was one of Buckley’s first columnists at National Review, work he continued for twenty-five years. First, though, Mr. Buckley had to convince Russell to undertake the work. That convincing started with a trip to Mecosta . . .
