Galbraith's Life, Part 1 to the Life & Works of
John Kenneth Galbraith

John Kenneth Galbraith was born in Ontario. His first degree was earned in his home province, and, then, turning to the United States to continue with his studies, he was to eventually receive a Ph.D. in 1934 from the University of California.1 Galbraith was to teach at both California and Princeton before joining the faculty at Harvard in 1948.

During WWII he was in charge of wartime price control. It is interesting to note that "Galbraith's attitude towards price and wage control is not really central to his position."2

During the Kennedy years he was an ambassador to India.

Galbraith's works include: The Great Crash (1955), The Affluent Society (1958), The Liberal Hour (1960), Made to Last (1964), and The New Industrial State (1967).
