Gregory May is the author of Jefferson’s Treasure: How Albert Gallatin Saved the New Nation from Debt. An internationally-known tax expert, he has written extensively about tax and tax policy. Decades of work on historic preservation have given him a lively sense of the past as a tangible world, and long familiarity with finance has helped him to decode the evidence about America’s financial founding.
After working as a Supreme Court law clerk, Greg practiced law in Washington, DC and New York for thirty years. He is a graduate of the College of William and Mary, where he wrote a thesis about the War of 1812, and Harvard Law School, where he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review.
His next book, A Madman’s Will, will be published by Liveright.
