By J.D. Harrison- "The Washington Post"



Harry C. McPherson, Jr. Aug. 22, 1929–Feb. 16, 2012


February 17, 2012

The Economic Club of Washington was deeply saddened to learn that Harry C. McPherson, who served as President of The Economic Club from 1992–1999, died Thursday, February 16, of complications from bone cancer. Mr. McPherson was the second President of The Economic Club, succeeding founding President Robert Linowes who died in 2007.

A native of Texas, Mr. McPherson was a prominent DC lawyer who served as Counsel and Special Counsel to President Lyndon B. Johnson from 1965–1969. He also was President Johnson’s chief speechwriter during that time. Other Administration positions Mr. McPherson held included Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs, Deputy Undersecretary of the Army for International Affairs, and Counsel to the Senate Democratic Policy Committee. Mr. McPherson’s Washington memoir, A Political Education, is considered an essential source for the Johnson Administration.

Soon after President Johnson left office, Mr. McPherson joined the Washington-based law firm Verner, Liipfert, and Bernhard, which he helped develop into one of the capital’s best-known lobbying firms. In 2002, the firm merged with DLA Piper. Mr. McPherson was awarded American Lawyer magazine’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2008.
