Hide Profile

James Addison Baker III was a central figure in the presidential administrations of Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.

Baker served as Reagan's White House Chief of Staff from 1980 to 1985 and Secretary of the Treasury from 1985 to 1988, and as Bush's Secretary of State from 1989-1992. Baker also led presidential campaigns for both Bush and Reagan, as well as Gerald Ford, over the course of five consecutive presidential elections from 1976 to 1992. Along with Bush, he was one of the few people to retain high level government positions for all twelve years of the Reagan-Bush era. Baker also served as a chief spokesman and led George W. Bush's legal team during the recount of votes in Florida during the 2000 presidential election.
