Nobel Prize-winning Economist. His 1941 Ph.D. thesis examined the mathematical structure underlying economics. It was later published as "Foundations of Economic Analysis", and revolutionized the field. In 1970 Samuelson became the first American to win the Nobel Prize in economics, a year after that award category was created. He also received the National Medal of Science, America's top science honor, in 1996. His highly-regarded study "Economics" (1948) was for years the most popular undergraduate textbook on the subject, and was in its 19th edition at the time of his death. An adviser to Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson, Samuelson also wrote a column for Newsweek magazine from 1966 to 1981. His career in economics spanned eight decades and he was still actively publishing into the 2000s.
