Early life and education

Kenneth Dam graduated from Marysville High School, Marysville, Kansas in 1950, from the University of Kansas in 1954, and earned his J.D. degree from the University of Chicago law school in 1957. He then served as a law clerk to United States Supreme Court justice Charles Whittaker in 1957 and 1958. He became an associate at the law firm of Cravath, Swaine & Moore until he joined the University of Chicago as a law professor in 1960, becoming provost in 1980.


Dam held a number of government positions during various Republican administrations while on leave from the University of Chicago:

  • Program Assistant Director for national security and international affairs at the Office of Management and Budget (1971–1973)
  • Executive Director of the White House Council on Economic Policy (1973)
  • Deputy Secretary of State (1982–1985)

After leaving the Reagan administration in 1985, Dam became vice president for law and external relations at IBM until 1992. He was president and CEO of the United Way of America in 1992, and helped lead an investigation of a highly publicized scandal in the leadership of that organization and reorganize its staff and governance. He then rejoined the University of Chicago law school faculty.
