US Secretary of State under Reagan: George Schultz († 100) is dead

Former US Secretary of State George Shultz is dead. Shultz, who was the chief diplomat of the United States under then US President Ronald Reagan, died on Saturday at the age of 100. The Hoover Institution – a think tank of the renowned Stanford University, to which Shultz belonged – announced on Sunday.

For several decades Shultz was one of the most prominent Republican presidents in the United States. Under Richard Nixon, a graduate of the elite Princeton universities and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), he became Secretary of Labor in 1969. He later moved to the White House as an influential budget director and then worked as finance minister.
