The Alan K. Simpson Institute for Western Politics and Leadership

American Heritage Center

The Alan K. Simpson Institute for Western Politics and Leadership is a program of the American Heritage Center focusing on the acquisition, preservation, and research use of the papers of prominent individuals, businesses, and organizations that have provided leadership – political, economic, social, and cultural – for Wyoming and the Rocky Mountain West.

Via its programs, the Institute facilitates the study of the roles and impacts of these individuals and groups that have put their stamp on this area. While the Institute’s emphasis is regional, the scope of the program includes a focus on national issues that impact the West.

The Simpson Institute was created in 2000 when Julienne Michel contributed $500,000 to the University of Wyoming as “seed” money and pledged a $1 million estate gift to endow the Institute’s permanent operations. Michel was a UW benefactor and friend of former U.S. Senator Alan K. Simpson and his wife, Ann.
