Frank Gregorsky, Senior Fellow - Discovery Institute
Frank Gregorsky, a resident of northern Virginia for most of the time since 1979, is a reformed policy analyst and an aspiring political historian.

He is writing a history of the House Republican Party -- known in its habitat as "the Conference" -- from Watergate to current times. His reflections on the 2012 primaries have appeared on BBC Radio and, and in the National Journal, New York Times, National Review and Washington Post.

As a Discovery program manager and Senior Fellow from 1996 to '99, Frank edited the book Speaking of George Gilder (Discovery Institute Press, 1998).

From August 1991 to January 1994, Gregorsky was publications director at the Congressional Institute. And during 1983-91 he held a series of research and editorial positions serving GOP members of Congress. He wrote about most domestic issues; covered the closing years of the Cold War; and spotlighted governing innovations in our sister democracies, especially the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia.

From April 1978 to July 1983, Gregorsky served Newt Gingrich, future House Speaker and lifelong insurgent, in a variety of positions, capped by 20 months as his congressional chief-of-staff.

Frank draws inspiration from Peter Drucker, Abraham Lincoln, Harry Truman, Queen Elizabeth I, and anyone who can organize and keep track of all the elements of a project. The only self-proclaimed philosopher who ever made sense to him is William James (1842-1910).
