Hoover Library & Archives has added a remarkable piece of memorabilia to the collection of Thomas W. and Susan B. Ford Distinguished Fellow and former U.S. Secretary of State George P. Shultz: Mr. Shultz’s cabinet chair, which bears plaques for the four different US cabinet positions Mr. Shultz held from the 1960s to the 1980s. Shultz served as Secretary of Labor, Director of Management & Budget, Secretary of the Treasury, and Secretary of State. Only one other person in American history, Elliot Richardson, holds the distinction of having held four different US Government Cabinet positions.


The Shultz cabinet chair is currently on display in the Annenberg Conference Room at the Hoover Institution.
