Ann Schlafly Cori

The old axiom, “The acorn didn’t fall far from the tree,” is an apt description of Anne Schlafly Cori, daughter of Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly. Anne was hand-selected by her mother to serve as the Vice Chair of Eagle Forum and hosted numerous Eagle Forum radio programs and made speeches for Eagle Forum since 2012. Close your eyes and you can almost hear Phyllis Schlafly through this video.


Anne grew up witnessing first-hand Phyllis Schlafly’s amazing leadership. In addition, Anne has developed a warm, personal relationship with Eagle Forum volunteers across the country and is uniquely positioned to help carry on the legacy of her remarkable mother. Eagle Forum is indeed in good hands.

Eunie Smith

Serving as the President of the Eagle Forum of Alabama and as the First Vice President of National Eagle Forum, Eunie Smith’s journey in American conservatism is nearly as extensive as is Phyllis Schlafly’s. Eunie Smith has stood shoulder-to-shoulder with an American icon and fought battles through the years that form the basis of an American success story.


Eunie Smith has served in the trenches with Phyllis Schlafly and shares her prescription for the future – strength through volunteerism. It is impossible not to be moved by the stories and reflections of this wonderful and effective force for American Values.


Eunie’s thoughtful commentary shines the way to a bright future for Eagle Forum. Her fight is our fight. That fight continues.

Rosina Kovar

Rosina was elected to serve on the Eagle Board in an at-large position in 2007. She has been active with Eagle Forum for decades. Her work has included pro-life issues (she has served as the Pro Life Chairman of her Parish for 22 years), phonics education, anti Common Core and anti Article 5 “Con-Con.” In addition, Rosina is active in protecting the sanctity of marriage and other conservative causes. She has been a consistent conservative voice in the Colorado State Legislature and has developed effective networking with other conservative leaders and groups.


Rosina and Phyllis Schlafly were dear friends and fellow warriors! Rosina describes Phyllis as “my great mentor.”

Cathie Adams

A Sunday School class about Crisis Pregnancy Centers introduced Cathie Adams to the need for activism in the cause of conservatism and American values. Her work as a crisis pregnancy counselor led her to getting to know Phyllis Schlafly. Through their 30-year friendship, Cathie and Phyllis have fought and won numerous battles together. Whether fighting Common Core, the Article 5 “Con-Con,” or protecting the sanctity of marriage, Cathie and Phyllis have been a major force in Texas for decades. Cathie has served both as a board member of Eagle Forum and served 23 years as the President of Eagle Forum of Texas.


Cathie’s work on UN Global Warming propaganda has been widely recognized as a most valuable addition to Eagle Forum’s agenda. Cathie has been recognized by Phyllis Schlafly for this work over the years and is often called upon to update Eagles nationwide.

Carolyn McLarty and Bunny Chambers

Dr. Carolyn McLarty has served on the Eagle Forum Board of Directors since 2014 at the request of Phyllis Schlafly. In addition to her work on the board, Carolyn serves as the Republican National Committeewoman for the Oklahoma Republican Party. In that capacity, her work on the Resolutions Committee drew Phyllis’ attention and support. Carolyn has been a leader to eliminate Common Core and the Article 5 Convention of the States. She has also played a key role in the Republican Party National Platform. Phyllis often calls upon Carolyn to update her fellow Eagles on her work on the Republican National Committee. Carolyn is a committed conservative who has been a highly effective voice for our values.


Bunny Chambers has known and worked with Phyllis Schlafly for over 40 years. She has served as President of Eagle Forum of Oklahoma. Bunny’s work for pro-life and pro-family causes has been highly effective in the state of Oklahoma and she was an integral leader in the state’s rejection of the Equal Rights Amendment in the 1970’s.

Shirley Curry

Shirley Curry began opposing the Equal Rights Amendment from the earliest days of Phyllis Schlafly’s efforts to defeat it. Shirley and Tottie Ellis began traveling throughout Tennessee and they successfully caused the Tennessee legislature to rescind their support of ERA. Thus began a 40+ year relationship between Shirley and Phyllis Schlafly. Through the years, Shirley and Phyllis worked shoulder-to-shoulder on a host of conservative causes. Phyllis asked Shirley to serve on the board of directors of the newly-founded Eagle Forum in 1975.


This video, which recounts Shirley’s earliest involvement with Eagle Forum, was recorded two days before Phyllis went home to be with the Lord on September 5, 2016. It is a loving tribute and a historical personal account of the earliest days of an American institution – the Eagle Forum.
