George Shultz 1920 - 2021

Feb 08, 2021

The Clements Center mourns the death yesterday of Secretary George Shultz, a member of our Statecraft Board of Advisors.  In his 100 years ranging from World War II combat as a Marine in the Pacific theater, to academic and corporate leadership, and to service under three US presidents in four cabinet positions, he lived a great American life. As President Reagan’s Secretary of State, he promoted the global expansion of liberty and helped bring about a peaceful victory in the Cold War. Now a grateful nation bids him farewell. For his century of life he lived the motto of his beloved Marines: Semper Fidelis.  As he enters his rest, may he and his family know the same peace he helped make for the world.
