Frontiers of Freedom

Wallop is the chairman of Frontiers of Freedom (FOF), a non-profit organization he established in January of 1995 immediately after retiring from the Senate.

Frontiers of Freedom and tobacco

See the "Frontiers of Freedom and Tobacco" section of Frontiers of Freedom for more information. (The information below should probably be moved there.)

Frontiers of Freedom is a tobacco industry funded group.[1][2] [3] [4] In a 1996 memo, Jeff Taylor of Frontiers of Freedom writes to Alexander White Spears, III of Lorillard Inc. to solicit funding. Taylor describes the activities in which FOF had engaged to attack the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's efforts to regulate the tobacco industry. The memo also shows how FOF managed to generate a clamor among Congressmembers for the praise of the relatively new group. The memo says,

One sure gauge of our growth took place recently when we presented 15 members of Congress with our 'Defender of Freedom' award. When we returned to the office, we had calls from a handful of other Members asking why they had not been recognized by Frontiers.

Commercial (board memberships)

Wallop sits on the boards of Hubbell, Inc., El Paso Energy Company, and Sheridan State Bank.
