Charles E. McLure, Jr. was born in Sierra Blanca, Texas on April 14, 1940. He received degrees in economics from the University
of Kansas and Princeton University. He attended the University of Kansas for a Bachelor's degree from 1958 to 1962. He then
attended Princeton for both his Master's and Doctoral degrees between 1962 and 1966. After a few years of teaching at Rice
