The Secretary of Defense and business executive is shown from the left side of his face in this black and white photograph
Photograph Signed: “Robert S. McNamara” in blue felt tip. Robert Strange McNamara (1916-2009) was born in San Francisco, California and was an American business executive and the eight Secretary of Defense, serving from 1961 to 1968 under Presidents John Fitzgerald Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson, during which time he played a huge role in escalating the United States involvement in the Vietnam War. Afterwards, he served as President of the World Bank from 1968 to 1981; he was also responsible for the institution of systems analysis in public policy, which developed into the discipline now known as policy analysis. McNamara consolidated intelligence and logistics functions of the Pentagon into two centralized agencies: the Defense Intelligence Agency and the Defense Supply Agency. Before the public service, McNamara was one of the “Whiz Kids” who helped rebuild Ford Motor Company after World War II, and briefly served as Ford's President before becoming Secretary of Defense. A group of advisors he brought to the Pentagon inherited the “Whiz Kid's” moniker. Robert McNamara passed away in his sleep at his home in Washington, D.C., on July 6, 2009, and was buried at the Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia. To this day, he remains the longest serving Secretary of Defense at over seven years. Surface slightly creased. Corners lightly rounded. Otherwise, fine condition.
