Mini Biographies of Scots and Scots Descendants (G)
Galbraith, John Kenneth


John Kenneth Galbraith was born in Ontario of Scottish parents, and educated at the Universities of Toronto, California and Cambridge. In 1939 he was teaching at Princeton and by 1949 was teaching at Harvard.

During WWII he was in charge of wartime price control. It is interesting to note that "Galbraith's attitude towards price and wage control is not really central to his position."

During the Kennedy years he was an ambassador to India.

Galbraith's works include: The Great Crash (1955), The Affluent Society (1958), The Liberal Hour (1960), Made to Last (1964), and The New Industrial State (1967).
