Edward Harrison Crane (born August 15, 1944)[1] is a co-founder of the Cato Institute and served as its President until October 1, 2012.[2]

In the 1970s, he was one of the most active leaders of the Libertarian Party. He was the Party's national chairman from 1974 to 1977,[3] worked on John Hospers's Presidential bid[4] and managed Ed Clark's 1978 campaign to be Governor of California. In 1980, Crane served as Communications Director to the Libertarian Party presidential ticket of Clark and Vice Presidential candidate David Koch.[5][6]

Crane sits on the boards of various political organizations, including Americans for Limited Government, a group that assists grassroots efforts throughout the country. Crane is also a member of the Mont Pelerin Society.

Tenure at Cato Institute

In 1977, with the funding of Charles Koch and the assistance of Murray Rothbard, Crane established the Cato Institute, a libertarian think-tank.

While at Cato, Crane grew the organization: from a staff of 10 and a budget of $800,000 when it first opened in San Francisco, to a staff of 127 and a $21 million budget in a newly renovated building in Washington, DC.[7] He retired from Cato in 2012.[8]
