Jimmy Carter    

Former United States President (1977-1981), Author

As the 39th president of the United States (1977-1981), Jimmy Carter's noteworthy accomplishments include the Camp David Accords, the Salt II Treaty, the Panama Canal Treaties, and improving diplomatic relations with the Republic of China. Carter is the author of such books as Beyond the White House: Waging Peace, Fighting Disease, Building Hope and We Can Have Peace in the Holy Land: A Plan That Will Work. He has earned numerous honors, including the Nobel Peace Prize.

As a man of silent perseverance, Carter is only concerned with using his responsibility as a public servant to promote peace and well being in the world. According to the Journal/NBC poll, he is viewed more favorably now than when he was in the White House and has gained respect among top presidential scholars.

Well known for his role in mediating Ethiopia's civil war, overseeing elections in Panama and Nicaragua, and monitoring elections in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, Carter is building a global constituency, stepping into monitor elections and mediate wars in other nations.

President Carter is building his resume as a political leader and liaison of peace. His nonprofit, the Carter Center, is a policy center for addressing vital world issues through nonpartisan study and consultation. The Center raises money to carry out a host of projects, including fighting river blindness in Uganda, helping small farmers triple corn yields in Ghana and Zambia, and pressing for democracy and peace in the Middle East and Latin America.
