Murray Weidenbaum, a White House economic adviser who counseled five U.S. presidents before returning to academia, has died. He was 87.

 

His death Thursday was announced by Washington University in St. Louis, where he worked for decades and continued to teach until a few weeks ago. The school did not reveal the cause of death.

Weidenbaum was the first chairman of President Ronald Reagan's Council of Economic Advisers. The Bronx native and graduate of City College of New York and Columbia University worked in the administrations of Harry S. Truman, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Richard Nixon and George H.W. Bush.

He previously taught at Stanford University. In 2001, Washington University renamed its Center for the Study of American Business the Weidenbaum Center on the Economy, Government, and Public Policy.
