NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City native who served as an adviser to President Richard Nixon on economic issues has died. Peter Flanigan was 90.
His daughter Megan Flanigan says he died Monday. He was in a hospital in a small town outside Salzburg, Austria. He had been splitting his time between homes in Austria and Purchase, N.Y.
Flanigan graduated from Princeton University and worked at the investment bank Dillon, Read & Co.
He served as deputy campaign manager for Nixon's campaign in 1968 and later joined the administration as an assistant to the president on economic concerns. He was appointed director of the Council of International Economic Policy in 1972. He resigned from the administration in 1974.
Flanigan returned to Dillon Read and remained there until 1992.
