Co-Founder, Co-Chair, and Strategic Advisor
NTI Co-Chair Sam Nunn joined current and former senior government officials, friends and family of George P. Shultz at an October 7 memorial service for the former Secretary of State who died earlier this year at the age of 100.
Held on the Stanford University campus in California, where Shultz served as a Hoover Institution distinguished fellow, the service drew a host of dignitaries including former Secretaries of State Condoleezza Rice and Henry Kissinger, former Defense Secretary James Mattis, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, former Secretary of State James Baker, and California Governor Gavin Newsom. Nunn delivered remarks describing Shultz’s “significant influence and enduring role in saving the world from nuclear catastrophe.”
Shultz was a friend and partner for more than 15 years in NTI’s work to promote the vision of a world without nuclear weapons and the practical steps to get there.
“George accomplished more in 100 years than most of us could do if given 400 years. His important work to bring about a more peaceful and stable world continued until the end of his life and will leave a lasting legacy for years to come,” Nunn said in a statement when Shultz died.
