Biographical Note

Charles E. McLure, Jr. was born in Sierra Blanca, Texas on April 14, 1940. He received degrees in economics from the University of Kansas and Princeton University. He attended the University of Kansas for a Bachelor’s degree from 1958 to 1962. He then attended Princeton for both his Master’s and Doctoral degrees between 1962 and 1966. After a few years of teaching at Rice University, McLure served as the Vice President of the National Bureau of Economic Research from 1977 to 1981. In 1983, he became Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Tax Analysis. McLure was responsible for developing the Treasury Department’s proposals to President Ronald Reagan for income tax reform. This work would be the basis for the Tax Reform Act of 1986. He was also Staff Director of the Working Group on Worldwide Unitary Taxation. At the end of his term as Deputy Assistant in 1985, he received the Treasury Department’s Exceptional Service Award. McLure has written extensively about tax reform and taxation, and has served as a consultant to various U.S. governmental agencies and international organizations.
