Richard "Dick" Cheney (b. 1941) was White House Chief of Staff under President Ford
(1974-1977), a member of Congress from Wyoming (1979-1989, rising to the position of
Minority Whip), Secretary of Defense under President George Bush (1989-1993). He
was CEO of the Halliburton Corporation (1995-2000) before being elected and re-elected
Vice President as the running mate of President George W. Bush (2001-2009). Cheney
played a key role in the first Bush administration's planning to liberate Kuwait in Operation
Desert Storm, and a key role again in President George W. Bush's "Operation Iraqi Freedom."
While in college in the 1930s, JOHN RAITT began drawing portraits of famous people. He
sent his artwork to each subject with a request that it be autographed and returned to him.
