WILBUR J. COHEN - PHOTOGRAPH SIGNED - HFSID 273415

 
WILBUR J. COHEN
JFK called him "Mr. Social Security"
Photograph signed: "Wilbur J. Cohen". B/w, 8x10. Although not a household name, Wilbur Cohen (1913-1987) was an important player in the design of American social insurance legislation from the New Deal to the Great Society. As an employee of the new Social Security Administration (1934), Cohen helped shape that institution. He influenced the Eisenhower administration, the first post-New Deal Republican, to continue support for the system. In the Johnson and Kennedy years, he was a planner at the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, rising to Secretary of the Department (1968-1969). He also played a major role in the design of Medicare, adopted in 1965. Pinhead sized spot in lower margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
