Mr. Getz Visit June 5, 2013
The other day, Henry Getz came to Auburn to talk to us about entrepreneurship. Henry, 93, is a long-time Institute supporter, and the man responsible for the great success of Morton Buildings.
The students were riveted by a real, live entrepreneur who could talk to us not only about his success, but all the government-generated events he lived through, and how much tougher it is now for people to start or significantly expand great companies. But they do it!
We recorded it all for our Oral History Project, and also presented Henry with the Mises Entrepreneurship Medal. It was much deserved, and part of a fascinating and moving day. Capitalists inspire us all.
