This year’s Pauley Lecture will be presented by John Roy Price, an insider in the Nixon Administration. He has just published a memoir called The Last Liberal Republican (

John Roy Price developed a keen interest in American History at Grinnell College, Iowa, from which he earned his BA. He was selected a Rhodes Scholar and earned a Masters degree from Oxford University in Philosophy, Politics and Economics. He completed a law degree from Harvard Law School and practiced law in New York. His work co-founding the Republican policy group, the Ripon Society, led to his involvement in the presidential campaigns of Gov. Nelson Rockefeller of New York, and then Richard Nixon. Price served as Special Assistant to the President for Urban Affairs in Nixon’s first term. He worked with Nixon on Nixon’s quite surprising social policies, including welfare reform, hunger and nutrition, and Nixon’s 1971 proposal for a national health insurance program. He returned to New York and a career in finance, with thirty years there, ending as a Managing Director of JPMorgan Chase. This was followed by a tour as Senior Advisor to the Institute for International Finance, in Washington. It was capped by five years, during the financial crisis, as President and CEO of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh. He has been the President of the Bankers Association for Foreign Trade, the Chairman of the start up electronic mortgage trading platform, MAXEX, and a Director of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. He lives in Pittsburgh and in Livingston, Montana.

Thomas (Tim) Borstelmann is E.N. and Katherine Thompson Professor of Modern World History at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
