Joseph E. Slater, 80, a UC Berkeley economics graduate whose international policy career included helping Germany rebuild after World War II, died Tuesday of Parkinson's disease at his home in Southampton, N.Y.
Slater helped develop an economic revitalization plan for Germany after World War II. In 1952, he moved to Paris, where he served as executive secretary to the U.S. representatives to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the Organization for European Economic Cooperation.
From 1961 to 1963, he was deputy assistant secretary of state for education and cultural affairs under President Kennedy. In that capacity, he wrote a report that later became the blueprint for Kennedy's Peace Corps.
Slater finished out his varied career as president of the Aspen Institute, from 1969 until retiring in 1986.
