Korb (born July 9, 1939, in New York City), is a Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress and a Senior Adviser to the Center for Defense Information. He was formerly Director of National Security Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York. Lawrence Korb attended the Athenaeum of Ohio, where he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1961. Going on to St. John's University, he obtained his Master's Degree in 1962, before joining the U.S. Navy in 1962. Korb served on active duty for four years as a Naval Flight Officer, and retired from the Naval Reserve with the rank of Captain. On completing his active duty, Korb returned to graduate school, where he received his PhD at the State University of New York Albany in 1969. Korb served as Associate Professor of Government at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy 1971-1975 and later Professor of Management at the Naval War College in 1975-1980. Korb served as advisor to the Reagan-Bush election committee in 1980 and was then appointed Assistant Secretary of Defense (Manpower, Reserve Affairs, Installations and Logistics) from 1981 to 1985. In that position, he administered about seventy percent of the Defense budget. For his service he was awarded the Department of Defense s medal for Distinguished Public Service. Korb was a Senior Fellow and Director of National Security Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. From July 1998 to October 2002, he was Council Vice President, Director of Studies, and holder of the Maurice Greenberg Chair. Prior to joining the Council, Korb served as Director of the Center for Public Policy Education and Senior Fellow in the Foreign Policy Studies Program at the Brookings Institution, Dean of the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Pittsburgh, and Vice President of Corporate Operations at the Raytheon Company. In 2005 Korb, Robert O. Boorstin, and the National Security Staff of the Center for American Progress published a position paper called "Integrated Power: A National Security Strategy for the 21st Century". In it they criticized President George W. Bush for invading Iraq and for devoting inadequate resources to the fight against Islamic fundamentalism. The authors also detailed plans to increase the manpower of the United States Army, to prevent terrorists from acquiring weapons of mass destruction, to spread liberal democratic values throughout the Middle East, and to reduce American dependence on foreign oil." From an on-line posting: "Bob Boorstin is currently a director of public policy in the Washington office of Google, where he has led the company's efforts on Internet freedom. Prior to coming to Google, Boorstin spent more than 25 years working in national security, political communications, research and journalism. He served for more than seven years with the Clinton administration, acting as the president's national security speechwriter; communications and foreign policy adviser to Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin; and adviser on the developing world to Secretary of State Warren Christopher. After leaving government, Boorstin helped start the Center for American Progress, where he established and ran the program on national security. He has worked on more than a dozen national and international political campaigns and advised Fortune 500 CEOs and some of the nation's leading advocacy groups. Early in his career, Boorstin was a reporter for The New York Times. A graduate of Harvard University (1981), he received a master's degree in International Relations from King's College, Cambridge University (1983)."
