In Hayeks' lap

Working on an exhibition on the early years of Friedrich A. von Hayek is challenging and I never know what I'm going to come across next. I'm sifting lots of paper, phoning schools and drawing maps. The opening is Monday morning, running against the clock!

But mostly it's fun! Look what I just found: The kid in the great mans lap is me!


  • How do you happen to get the privilege of sitting on his knee? Were you related to him or a family friend?

    Thanks for doing this website and research. Keep up the good work!

  • Thanks! I realize that I haven't been doing to many updates here due to the workload thanks to the crisis Hayek would have forseen. I am actually his great Nephew. We are working on getting many of the letters published and hope to update a Biography with his life in Vienna up to 1930. It was an interesting period and very relevant to today.
