BIOGRAPHY OF GOVERNOR JOHN CONNALLY





Governor Connally received a bachelor's degree and law degree from The University of Texas at Austin. He was elected to his first term as Governor in 1962 and re-elected in 1964 and 1966,serving Texas during a period of enormous growth in higher education. He emphasized the need for greater access to top-quality higher education and advanced the concept of university systems. Such systems, including the UT System, grew and prospered during his three terms as Governor.

The former Governor had a distinguished law career and served as Secretary of the Navy in the administration of President John F. Kennedy. He was also Secretary of the Treasury and Special Adviser to the President in the administration of Richard Nixon. Democrat John B. Connally's (1917-1993) appointment as Secretary of the Treasury was seen as a shrewd political move for President Nixon, who had to reorganize his Republican cabinet in response to Democratic gains in the 1970 congressional election. With deteriorating domestic and international economic conditions, Nixon announced his "New Economic Policy" in 1971. Internationally this meant, "closing the gold window," or an end to the United States's legal obligation to exchange dollars held by foreign banks for gold. For the first time since the 1944 Bretton Woods Conference, the dollar was no longer pegged to gold and world currencies floated (this was formalized by Treasury Secretary George Shultz in 1973).

Domestically Nixon and Connally initiated deficit spending under the name of a "full employment budget," and imposed a wage and price freeze. Connally was described by New York Times columnist James Reston as "the spunkiest character in Washington these days.... He is tossing away computerized Treasury speeches, and telling American business and labor off the cuff to get off their duffs if they want more jobs, more profits and a larger share of the competitive world market." Connally resigned in 1972 to campaign for Nixon's reelection.

On several occasions, Connally visited the Old Stagecoach Shop which is located in the Old Stage Coach Stop of Liberty Hill. Governor Connally died June 15, 1993.
