He began his career at G. H. Walker & Co., a banking and brokerage firm.

Donaldson returned to Yale and founded the Yale School of Management, where he served as dean and professor of management studies. Donaldson had a vision of Yale’s management program forming students who could easily and seamlessly flow between public and private management roles. This was a binary vision, emphasizing private for profit corporations and government leadership positions, while ignoring leadership in various not-for-profit, non-governmental organizations. His grand visions of balanced approaches were shattered when the first graduating class almost all took positions in business, almost none taking jobs with government. The main building of the school continues to display a life-size portrait of him and the premier leadership award at Yale School of Management is called “Donaldson Fellows”. He also served in the United States Marine Corps Continue reading “Subject: William H. Donaldson”

Subject of Interest, Tweet

Comment: Mr. Cohodes, who is very much present in the tag cloud, seems to think that we have all forgotten his years of engagement in the ecology of naked short selling. His offering to brief Congress, which G. Robert Blakey considers a RICO organization enabling naked short selling, is laughable. We have it all, Mr. Cohodes.  There is no place to run.
