Reference work entry


Vernon has been a most prolific writer on international economic relations in the post World War II era. His writings reflect a multi-faceted career which includes nearly two decades in government service, a short stint with private business, three years as director of the New York Metropolitan Region Study and, since 1959, a fruitful association with Harvard University, first at the Business School, where he was the leading figure in the teaching and research of international business, and later at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, where he was incumbent of the Clarence Dillon Chair of International Affairs until his retirement.
