Raymond Cyrus Hoiles

"[O]ne great libertarian, Raymond Cyrus Hoiles, spread his radical ideas not within an intellectual ivory tower, but within daily newspapers aimed at everyone in his community. He worked not in a nonprofit think tank, but within his own family-owned business. That business was a set of newspapers (and eventually other media outlets) named, not after him, but after the idea he most treasured: Freedom. That company is now called Freedom Communications, and its flagship newspaper is The Orange County Register...

"From the Orange County community weaned on Hoiles' words arose the movement of powerful belief in free markets and small government that helped make Barry Goldwater the Republican presidential candidate in 1964, then in 1966 made Ronald Reagan governor of California and eventually president." [1]
