Paulson joins Johns Hopkins as visiting scholar

WASHINGTON, Jan 21 (Reuters) - Henry Paulson, treasury secretary in the Bush administration, is joining the Johns Hopkins University Paul Nitze School of Advanced International Studies as a distinguished visiting scholar, the school said on Wednesday.

Paulson served as treasury secretary in the last years of the Bush administration, taking over from John Snow who resigned in 2006. From 1999 until he became treasury secretary, he was chairman and chief executive officer of Goldman Sachs.

Paulson will begin his stint on Jan. 29 where he will be a fellow at the Bernard Schwartz Forum on Constructive Capitalism, the university said.

“His record of achievement in the private sector and his leadership in the public sector during these extraordinary times make him the ideal visitor to our school,” said SAIS Dean Jessica Einhorn.

Paulson attended Dartmouth College and went on to receive a Masters of Business Administration degree from Harvard in 1970. (Reporting by Nancy Waitz; Editing by James Dalgleish)
