Nicholas P. Provenzo
Chairman

Nicholas ProvenzoIn 1998, Nicholas P. Provenzo founded the Center for the Advancement of Capitalism. Via his work at the Center, Provenzo has established and led advocacy programs in defense of victims of the governmental violation of individual rights in areas including antitrust, fundamental tax reform, property rights, environmental legislation, genetic research and the Elián Gonzalez immigration case.

Provenzo provided written testimony to the US Senate Committee on the Judiciary and the US District Court Judge on the Microsoft antitrust case and his arguments were included in Department of Justice’s "Major Comments List," the first time the Objectivist argument calling for the repeal of antitrust was given such consideration. Provenzo also led grassroots efforts that raised over 25,000 signatures for petition to Congress in defense of Microsoft in its antitrust case and 10,000 signatures in defense of Elián Gonzalez.

Provenzo's writing has appeared in the Washington Times and the Atlanta Journal Constitution and he been a guest on countless radio shows, including NPR's All Things Considered, The Right Side with Armstrong Williams and the former Mary Matalin Radio Show. Provenzo also was a guest on Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher.

Provenzo graduated from George Mason University, receiving a Bachelor of Individualized Studies in the theory and practice of capitalism. A five-year veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, Provenzo participated in Operation Sharp Edge in Monrovia, Liberia and operations in the eastern Mediterranean in support of Operations Desert Shield and Provide Comfort. Provenzo currently studies law at the University of Baltimore School of Law.

Prior to forming the Center, Provenzo worked for the Argus Group, an Alexandria, Virginia, based law and government relations firm that specializes in tax law and fundamental tax reform.

Primarily a novelist, he has written fifteen novels and nearly one hundred published nonfiction articles, book reviews, monographs, and essays for such publications as The Wall Street Journal, the Colonial Williamsburg Journal, Marine Corps League, The Social Critic, and the Encyclopedia of Library and Information Science on subjects ranging from censorship to politically correct speech. His articles have also appeared on websites such as Capitalism Magazine, The Rule of Reason, and Dougout. His article on John Locke in the Colonial Williamsburg Journal was reprinted twice in McGraw-Hill Dushkin’s Western Civilization II, a college textbook, and also served as the basis of a course in political science at Virginia Wesleyan College in Norfolk.

Of his novels, First Prize, the second in a series of stories that feature a detective who solves murders based on moral paradoxes, was published in 1988. Whisper the Guns, the first in a suspense series featuring an American entrepreneur hero, was published in 1992. In 2001 the first of his Sparrowhawk novels, set in Virginia and England in the decades preceding the Revolution, appeared. The sixth and last title in that series will debut in December of 2006.

Aside from his nonfiction, he is planning to complete the third a series of detective novels set in Roaring Twenties San Francisco. More complete biographical entries on him can be found in several numbers of Contemporary Authors, a reference work published by Gale Research, together with his philosophy of writing and literature.
