Michael Joyce (1942-2006) was the head of the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation between 1985 and 2001. Prior to joining the Bradley foundation Joyce had been Executive Vice-President of the John M. Olin Foundation from 1979 to 1985.
Bill Berkowitz wrote of Joyce that "if there was a Hall of Fame for right wing philanthropists and their facilitators ... one of its first inductees would undoubtedly be Michael Joyce."
