Biographical / Historical

Raymond Vernon (September 1, 1913 – August 25, 1999) worked at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) from 1935 to 1946, where he wrote Civil Affairs Guides for the Military on Japan’s capital and securities markets. While employed by the SEC, Vernon was sent to Japan to write a report on anti-trust and de-concentration of economic power with Corwin Edwards. Soon after his return to the United States in 1946, he began working for the State Department. He was a member of the Marshall Plan team, worked on the development of the International Monetary Fund, and helped negotiate the inclusion of Japan in the General Agreements on Tariffs and Trade (GATT). In 1959, he began teaching at Harvard University, where he conducted research on multinational corporations and the international economy. Raymond Vernon passed away in 1999 at the age of 85.
