Ann McLaughlin Korologos (born Ann Lauenstein; November 16, 1941), formerly known as Ann Dore McLaughlin, was the United States Secretary of Labor from 1987 to 1989.
Life and career
Korologos was born in Chatham, New Jersey, the daughter of Marie (née Koellhoffer) and Edward Joseph Lauenstein, a manufacturer representative for a wartime ammunitions company. She was educated at Saint Patrick School, the Academy of Saint Elizabeth, Marymount College, Tarrytown, and undertook graduate studies at both the University of London and the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
From 1996 to 2000, she was the chair of the Aspen Institute. From 2000 to 2006, she was on the board of directors of Microsoft, from which she resigned due to "increasing demands on her time from other professional and personal commitments".
In 2008, she was on the District of Columbia Republican presidential primary ballot as a John McCain delegate.
She currently serves as a member of the board of directors of several companies, including Fannie Mae, Vulcan Materials Company, and the Kellogg Company, and from 2004-2009 served as chairman of the RAND Corporation board of trustees.
Previously, her married name was Dore, and in 1975 she married the political commentator and former Jesuit priest John McLaughlin, after having served as his campaign manager in his 1970 failed challenge against John Orlando Pastore for his Rhode Island seat in the United States Senate. They were divorced in 1992.
Ann Korologos Gallery
Korologos is an avid art collector, and in 2007 she purchased the Basalt Gallery, of Basalt, Colorado. In June 2009, the gallery outgrew its old location and moved to a larger space downtown. She changed the name to the Ann Korologos Gallery at the same time. The gallery exhibits art of the American West, and artists influenced by the West, including Lloyd Schermer, Michael Kessler (artist), Tom Korologos, Dan Young, Tomas Lasansky (son of famed artist Mauricio Lasansky), Dan Namingha, and Gordon Gund.
