PROFILE:      Director of Harvard University's Belfer Center for
Science and International Affairs,
Graham Allison has, for three decades,
been a leading analyst of U.S. national security
and defense policy specializing in nuclear
weapons, terrorism and decision-making.  Allison was
the "Founding Dean" of Harvard's modern
Kennedy School.  Under his leadership, a small,
undefined program grew twenty-fold to become a
major professional school of government and
public policy.


As Assistant Secretary of Defense in the
Clinton Administration, Allison received the
Defense Department's highest civilian award, the
Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service, for
"reshaping relations with Russia, Ukraine, Belarus
and Kazakhstan to reduce the former Soviet nuclear
arsenal."  He also served as Special Advisor to the
Secretary of Defense under President Ronald Reagan,
and was a member of the Defense Policy Board
for Secretaries Casper Weinberger, Frank Carlucci,
Dick Cheney, Les Aspin, Bill Perry and William Cohen. 


Allison is a founding member of the Trilateral Commission
and a Director of the Council on Foreign Relations. 
He also is a member of the Baker-Cutler DOE Task Force
on Nonproliferation Programs with Russia,
the Commission on Prevention of Weapons
of Mass Destruction Proliferation and Terrorism and
the IAEA's Commission of Eminent Persons.

A native of Charlotte, N.C., Allison earned degrees
from Harvard College (B.A., Magna Cum Laude, in
History); Oxford University (B.A. and M.A., First
Class Honors in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics);
and Harvard University (Ph.D. in Political Science).
