Ash Council Reflections by Andy Rouse '49
Wednesday, January 29, 2014
Andrew Rouse ’49, Trustee Emeritus, will be interviewed by Geoffrey Shepard in regard to his role with the President’s Advisory Council on Executive Organization, commonly referred to as the Ash Council, that worked during 1969-1970 as well as the rationale behind its recommendations which played a key role in the establishment of the Office of Management and Budget and the Environmental Protection Agency. More generally, the Ash Council worked to promote the rationalizing and streamlining of the administrative structure of the Executive Office of the President, thus forming the basis of the modern presidency.
The National Archives and the Richard Nixon Foundation have underwritten this interview. The proceedings will be taped by the Nixon Library as well as by C-Span for broadcast on its American History channel.
This event is open to the public.
