Kenneth M. Duberstein (born April 21 1944) served as U.S. President Ronald Reagan's White House Chief of Staff from 1988 to 1989.

A native of Brooklyn, Duberstein attended P.S. 139. He graduated from Franklin and Marshall College (A.B. 1965) and American University (M.A. 1966). He received an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from Franklin and Marshall in 1989. While in college he was a member of Zeta Beta Tau. His wife, Jacqueline Duberstein, is a producer of the "Charlie Rose Show".

During President Reagan's two terms in office, he also served in the White House as Deputy Chief of Staff (1987), as well as both the Assistant and the Deputy Assistant to the President for Legislative Affairs (1981-83).

Prior to joining the Administration, he was Vice President and Director of Business-Government Relations of the Committee for Economic Development. He returned to the private sector between his various White House assignments as Vice President of Timmons & Company Inc, a government relations firm.

His earlier government service included Deputy Under Secretary of Labor during the Ford Administration and Director of Congressional and Intergovernmental Affairs at the U.S. General Services Administration. He began his public service on Capitol Hill as an assistant to Senator Jacob K. Javits.

Among the Board of Directors on which Mr. Duberstein serves are: The Boeing Company, ConocoPhillips, the Fleming Companies, Inc., and The St. Paul Companies, Inc. He also is on the Board of Governors for the American Stock Exchange and NASD. He is a trustee of Franklin & Marshall College and Johns Hopkins University and serves as well on a wide range of commissions, task forces, and cultural, educational and volunteer boards: Vice Chairman of the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, Harvard University's Kennedy School Harvard's Institute of Politics Senior Advisory Committee, the board of directors of the Council on Foreign Relations, the Ronald Reagan Institute of Emergency medicine, the National Alliance to End Homelessness, Ford's Theater and The American Council on Capital Formation.

He was awarded the President's Citizens Medal by President Reagan in January 1989. He is Chairman of the Ethics Committee for the U.S. Olympic Committee and served as Vice Chairman of the independent Special Bid Oversight Reform Commission for the U.S. Olympics Committee.

Duberstein has been a "political adviser" to former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage, according to syndicated columnist Robert Novak, who says Duberstein was a source for David Corn's and Michael Isikoff's book about the Valerie Plame affair in which Armitage was found to be the one who leaked Plame's CIA status to Novak. [http://www.weeklystandard.com/Utilities/printer_preview.asp?idArticle=12785&R=EE501DF13] Novak, Robert, "Who Said What When: The rise and fall of the Valerie Plame 'scandal'", "The Weekly Standard", October 16 2006, book review of "Hubris: The Inside Story of Spin, Scandal, and the Selling of the Iraq War," by Michael Isikoff and David Corn, accessed October 8, 2008. Novak wrote: "I don't know precisely how Isikoff flushed out Armitage [as Novak's original source] , but "Hubris" clearly points to two sources: Washington lobbyist Kenneth Duberstein, Armitage's political adviser, and William Taft IV, who was the State Department legal adviser when Armitage was deputy secretary.]
