Washington post WWW site, viewed Dec. 9, 2019 (in obituary dated Dec. 9, 2019: Paul A. Volcker, a hard-headed economic statesman who as chairman of the Federal Reserve from 1979 to 1987 shocked the U.S. economy out of a cycle of inflation and malaise and so set the stage for a generation of prosperity, died Dec. 8 at his home in Manhattan. He was 92. Paul Adolph Volcker Jr. was born in Cape May, N.J., on Sept. 5, 1927. Mr. Volcker went to work at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in 1952, prepared reports for policymakers on the inner workings of the financial markets and thus experienced a crash course in the nexus of economics, finance and public policy. In 1957, he left to work at Chase Manhattan Bank. He joined the Kennedy administration in 1962 as a Treasury official working on complex international financial matters. After another sojourn at Chase Manhattan, Mr. Volcker was named by the Nixon administration in 1969 to the job of Treasury undersecretary for monetary affairs)
