was established in St. Louis, Missouri in 1993 as the national headquarters and resource center of Eagle Forum Education & Legal Defense Fund. The building at 7800 Bonhomme Avenue in Clayton, a St. Louis suburb just west of Washington University/St. Louis, is visible evidence of the permanent life and vitality of this unique foundation and think-tank.

Phyllis Schlafly Historians who have evaluated our archives call them "a unique and extraordinarily rich" collection of publications, DVDs, CDs, files, correspondence, personal papers, and unpublished manuscripts that offer "important insight into the conservative movement of the second half of the 20th century, its ideology and its activists."
