Ash Carter: Remembering Harold Brown

| Jan. 05, 2019

Belfer Center Director Ash Carter fondly remembers former Secretary of Defense Harold Brown who died January 4 at the age of 91. Harold Brown, Carter writes, "represented rigor and truth in the grave matter of protecting America, civility and decency in conduct, and adherence to long-standing bipartisan security commitments around the world. These commitments have characterized the department to this day, which gives me great faith in the future."
