Willi Schlamm was a member of the Communist Right Opposition in Austria before World War Two. He later became an editor of William Buckley's National Review.[1]

In the late 1940s, Schlamm was an ideological advisor to Henry Luce. Schlamm approached Buckley to launch a magazine after faling to persuade Luce to start a Conservative magazine.[2]
