Vaughn Bryan Baltzly
Bryan Baltzly hails from a small and very pleasant town in northwest Ohio called Wauseon. He attended Hillsdale College, in a small and pleasant town in south-central Michigan, for four years after high school. After earning a bachelor of arts degree there in 1999, with majors in English and philosophy, he came to small, pleasant Blacksburg to pursue an M.A. in philosophy from Virginia Tech. Finding academia quite to his liking, he then sought and secured admission to the Ph.D. program at the University of Maryland-College Park, very near to Washington DC – which is neither small nor particularly pleasant. There Bryan will adjust to urban life and continue his graduate studies through the “Committee on Politics, Philosophy, and Public Policy.” He hopes to earn both a master’s in public policy and a doctorate in philosophy, and then wield his over-educated brain in both the academic and the political arenas.
