028 – Fred Edwords Visits and Speaks Humanism


Fred Edwords has a long history in organized humanism. For 15 years he was executive director of the American Humanist Association, for 12 years editor of the Humanist magazine, and for six years national director of the United Coalition of Reason. He is past president of Camp Quest, a summer camp for freethinking children, and has served on the board of the International Humanist and Ethical Union and the founding board of the National Center for Science Education. Through the 1980s he was the founder and editor of the Creation/Evolution journal, the only publication specializing in answering creationist arguments, and debated all the nation’s leading creationists. As a continuing voice for humanist ideas, he has, over the past forty years, appeared on national and local radio and television in the United States and Canada, been interviewed on radio and for newspapers around the world, and has lectured in North America, Europe, and India.
Today he is director of planned giving for the Humanist Foundation of the American Humanist Association and would be pleased to help you provide a future for your humanist values in your will or other estate plan. He also serves on the adjunct faculty of the Humanist Institute, is the American Humanist Association’s historian, and sits on the Broader Social Impacts Committee of the Hall of Human Origins at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington DC.
