ABSTRACT
The article profiles Daniel Patrick Moynihan and his career in the U.S. executive branch. He was first in the Labor Department during the administrations of presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson, from 1961 to 1965, and then on the White House staff of President Richard M. Nixon from 1968 to 1970. Being an assistant to a secretary of labor and then the department's first assistant secretary for policy planning was not necessarily grim work or heavy lifting. Moynihan's broad-ranging mandate at Labor also gave him an opportunity to explore questions of automobile safety and the social welfare of African American family. When Moynihan was surprisingly asked by President-elect Nixon to be his assistant for urban affairs, he had a temporary home and office waiting in Washington.
