Schultz passed away Saturday at his home on the Stanford University campus, the Think Tank Hoover Institution, of which he was a member.
During his long political career, Schultz held three important cabinet positions in Republican governments. He was Minister of Labor and Finance under President Richard Nixon, and under Reagan he was head of diplomacy for six years. Was the oldest member of the previous US government.
When Schultz was in office in the State Department in 1987, the USSR signed an agreement to eliminate medium- and short-range missiles, which helped destroy all missiles at a range of 500 to 5,000 kilometers. The document, which was the Soviet Union’s first treaty to reduce its nuclear weapons, was part of an effort to end the arms race.
