If Alexander Acosta is confirmed as the nation’s 27th secretary of labor—it’s considered likely—he will join some illustrious company:

  • The first labor secretary, William Wilson (1913–1921), was an accomplished poet.
  • Arthur Goldberg (1961–1962) went on to become a Supreme Court justice and United Nations ambassador.
  • Frances Perkins (1933–1945) was the longest serving secretary of labor and the nation’s first female cabinet secretary.
