The Labor Board Crew

University of Illinois Press

Of the countless graduate students whom the Labor Board vets taught, only one was as brilliant, fervid, and thick-skinned as their tutors. That student was George Shultz. This chapter begins by discussing Shultz’s family background, education, military experience, and career in industrial relations and teaching before he entered government. The bulk of the chapter explains how Shultz drew on his experience in industrial relations to help establish affirmative-action programs in industry and unions and desegregate southern public schools in the Nixon administration and forge peaceful relations between the United States and the Soviet Union by the end of the Ronald Reagan administration.
