9781495808302: The Americanism of John Ben Shepperd

Who was Texas Attorney General John Ben Shepperd? What did he stand for? What did he accomplish? What is his legacy? The Americanism of John Ben Shepperd answers those questions and more. John Ben Shepperd (JBS) was a powerhouse of ideas and action, all focused on the betterment of Texas by cultivating leadership in its youth. Beginning his professional career upon graduation from the University of Texas at Austin with a law degree in 1941, he served his country in World War II, returning home to begin his political career. John Ben was a firebrand of a public speaker and he knew how to excite people to action. Expertly organizing them into committees and groups, he orchestrated a great deal of swift progress for Texas during his 1953-57 tenure as Attorney General. Texas only public leadership institute was named after him and renders service to the youth of Texas today by teaching them leadership, ethics, and public service. John Ben s speeches are the stuff of legend they can inspire people to action today as they did in the 1950s. John Ben s values and principles are badly needed today. If you are a young leader improving your skills and action this book is for you. If you are a seasoned leader in search of a refresher this book is for you. If you are an elected or appointed official looking to provide the best possible service to your constituents this book is for you.

Review:

Dr. Robert Brescia s compilation of the works and philosophy of one of Texas greatly underappreciated leaders, The Americanism of John Ben Shepperd, not only radiates an appreciation of history, but it captures a vision of how we should think today. --Tieman H. Skipper Dippel, Jr. Chairman, Brenham National Bank, Brenham, Texas

John Ben Shepperd once said, To be born free is an accident; to live free is a responsibility; and to die free is an obligation. Through these words, Shepperd taught us how to live a uniquely American life. Accidentally, we were born in the land of the free,' throughout our lives we assume the responsibility, whether through volunteerism, military service, public service, or merely being a good citizen to preserve those freedoms. And, if we were properly responsible at the end of our life, we all will have fulfilled our obligation to remain free. Dr. Robert Brescia brings us the lessons so many of us learned listening to General Shepperd in a comprehensive volume that is clear and unmistakably John Ben. The Americanism of John Ben Shepperd should not only be on every American s bookshelf, but read by them daily. --Timothy P. O Brien, Ph.D. President & CEO, Tycoon Tackle Inc. Charlottesville, Virginia

In The Americanism of John Ben Shepperd, Dr. Robert Brescia has thoughtfully compiled excerpts of speeches, writings, and other public comments of former Texas Attorney General, political adviser and friend of President Lyndon B. Johnson, and Odessan John Ben Shepperd. John Ben s writings and orations included in this volume not only provide a glimpse into his life and times, but remind us that sustaining America s freedoms, opportunities, and greatness is made possible only by the willingness of its people to aspire and to become ethical public servants and leaders. --Daniel Heimmermann, Ph.D. Provost and Vice President for Academic AffairsThe University of Texas of the Permian Basin
