Henry Hall Wilson
Occupation Former CBOT President

Henry Hall Wilson was a lawyer, politician and served as President and CEO of the Chicago Board of Trade from 1967 - 1973. He died in 1979 at the age of 57.[1]

Wilson was the president of the CBOT when it developed and launched the Chicago Board Options Exchange in 1973.[2]

Background[edit]

Wilson was a classmate of Jesse Helms and Skipper Bowles in Monroe, NC.[3]

Before he joined the CBOT, he was administrative assistant to the President of the United States from 1961-67 for both President John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson. He had previously been the North Carolina chairman for John F. Kennedy's presidential campaign (in 1960) and was the North Carolina delegate to the Democratic National Convention in 1956. [4]

Wilson was replaced as CBOT president & CEO by Warren W. Lebeck in 1973.[5] Later in 1973, he made an unsuccessful bid for U.S. Senate seat in North Carolina vacated by Sam J. Ervin.

Wilson had recruited Joseph Sullivan, a former Wall Street Journal reporter in Washington to the Board of Trade in 1967. Sullivan was a Knoxville native who studied liberal arts at Princeton and journalism at Columbia and had caught the eye of Wilson while Wilson was President Lyndon Johnson's liaison to Capitol Hill. Sullivan would become the first president of the CBOE when it was launched in 1973.[6]

Education[edit]

Hall graduated from Duke University in 1942 with a bachelor of arts degree and 1948 with a law degree after serving in the Army during World War II..[7]
