May 2, 2006, Greencastle, Ind. - Dan Quayle -- chairman of Cerberus Global Investment Investments, LLC, the 44th vice president of the United States, and 1969 graduate of DePauw University -- will speak at the University of California-Riverside's Palm Desert campus next week. In his May 11 address, Quayle will discuss "Business and Politics: A Global Perspective."
An announcement from UCR states that Quayle "graduated from DePauw in 1969 with a degree in political science and entered Indiana University Law School where he received his law degree in 1974... Quayle was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1976 at age 29. When he was elected to the U.S. Senate at age 33 in 1980, he was the youngest person ever elected to the Senate from Indiana. On Jan. 20, 1989 he took the oath of office as the 44th vice president of the United States at age 41. Since leaving public office, Quayle has authored three books: Standing Firm: A Vice-Presidential Memoir, which was on the New York Times bestseller list for 15 weeks; The American Family: Discovering the Values that Make Us Strong; and Worth Fighting For. For two years he was a distinguished visiting professor of international studies at Thunderbird, The American Graduate School of International Management in Glendale, Arizona."
Besides his chairmanship at Cerberus, he also serves as president of Quayle & Associates, and on the board of directors of several major corporations.
Dan Quayle was profiled in the October 3, 2005 issue of Business Week, which described him as a "smart-as-they-come businessman." In November, a video tribute from Dan Quayle was played at a dinner honoring his former golf coach and good friend, Ted Katula. See it by clicking here.Back
