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. Fine condition.
