At the outset, with Vanguard a brand-new name in the industry, having little public recognition and a fragile asset base, I was apprehensive about applying our corporate name to the funds. But by early 1980, I was confident that we were not only at last on solid ground, but that we were about to take off. It was time to establish our name. We would add “Vanguard” to the names of all of our funds (“Vanguard Wellington,” and so on) and began by asking shareholders of Whitehall, Warwick, Westminster, and First Index to approve the addition.
The Challenges We Face I suppose that Vanguard’s future—and indeed the future life of each of us—will inevitably swing back and forth between favoring winds and head winds, between stormy seas and tranquil seas. Surely enough challenges exist to assure that we will live in interesting times. Globally, we must be concerned with world population, widespread poverty, the earth’s finite resources, the threat of nuclear holocaust. Nationally, we must be concerned with the protection of our hard-won liberty, the integration of minority groups into the American system, a political process in which we too often seem to have lost the ability to govern ourselves, and a too-fragile economy that needs rebalancing, fresh approaches, and renewed vitality.
