Graham T. T. Molitor
From 1996: "For the past 30 years, Graham T.T. Molitor has been thinking about the future. In the 1960s, as research director and speech writer with several presidential campaigns, he advised candidates to become "architects of destiny." Today, as vice president and legal counsel of the World Future Society, he is devoted to the future of futurism itself.
"But Molitor does more than just think about the future. He chronicles it as well. He is co-editor of the recently published "Encyclopedia of the Future" (Macmillan Library Reference, $185), a unique source of ideas about where the world -- and business -- is headed. The two-volume, 1,000-page encyclopedia is as approachable as it is ambitious. It includes 450 essays from more than 400 authorities, including Daniel Bell, John Naisbitt, Alvin Toffler, and Jay Forrester. The essays cover an array of topics: the future of animal rights, law enforcement, online services, work force diversity -- "everything from black holes to pot holes," Molitor jokes."
