University of Nebraska-Lincoln alumnus Clayton Yeutter, who lives in Potomac, Md., was born in 1930 in Eustis, Nebraska and has served four U.S. presidents in a career spanning several decades. He earned all of his degrees at the university, beginning with a bachelor of science degree in 1952. After five years serving in the U.S. Air Force and expanding his farm operations, he completed a law degree and a doctorate in agricultural economics. Yeutter’s efforts in government and the private sector have had a lasting impact on the world economy. He served in three sub-cabinet posts and in three cabinet or cabinet-level posts: secretary of agriculture, U.S. trade representative and counselor to the president, the only Nebraskan ever to do so. He also spent several years as CEO of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. Returning to the private sector in 1993, Yeutter joined what has become Hogan Lovells LLP, one of the largest law firms in the world, where his focus is on trade issues.
