George Pratt Shultz

To honor the remarkable legacy of George Pratt Shultz, Hoover’s Thomas W. and Susan B. Ford Distinguished Fellow, a new exhibition reflects on some of the most important points in his accomplished life and career. Installed in the new Annenberg Conference Room in February, On the Record, Life Lessons from George P. Shultz, is a didactic display highlighting inspirational quotes by Mr. Shultz to encourage those who will meet, debate, and grow during events in the space. The exhibition also provides a rich tapestry of photographs and milestones from the life of Mr. Shultz—spanning his time as a Marine in WWII to his work at Hoover today.

Mr. Shultz has had a distinguished career in government, in academia, and in the world of business. He is one of two individuals who have held four different federal cabinet posts; he has taught at three of this country’s great universities; and for eight years he was president of a major engineering and construction company. The new exhibition pays tribute to Mr. Shultz’s life and legacy using materials from his papers housed at Hoover Archives.
