DAVID E. SANGER
Class of 1978
Before coming to the White House, Sanger was a correspondent and then bureau chief of The New York Times bureau in Tokyo. There, he developed a specialisation in writing on the influence of economics and foreign policy, and the relationships between the United States and its major allies, a subject he continues to pursue in Washington. Although he was never able to actually learn the Japanese language, Sanger immersed himself in the culture, history and politics of Japan. Sanger embraced the Japanese economic model while it continued to fail in many Southeast Asian countries.
He left Asia in 1994 to become the chief Washington economic correspondent, later being named senior writer and, in 1999, joined the ranks of Elisabeth Bumiller as White House correspondent. President Bush, who commonly nicknames those with whom he has close contact, has nicknamed Sanger "that guy from Gerald M. Boyd's (managing editor of The Times) paper."
