Simi Valley, California – The Reagan Foundation and Institute mourns the loss of Ann McLaughlin Korologos, a trailblazer who devoted her life to public service. Ann was the quintessential Renaissance woman, equally at ease in the art gallery she owned, the educational foundations she supported, the corporate boardrooms she ran, or the high-level public offices in which she served.
Ann Korologos was U.S. Secretary of Labor from 1987-1989 under President Ronald Reagan, only the second woman to undertake that position. She also served as Under Secretary of the Department of the Interior and Assistant Secretary of the Department of the Treasury. In the private sector, she served as Chairman of the President’s Commission on Aviation Security and Terrorism with particular reference to the destruction of Pan American Airways Flight 103.Download Press Release
