Henry Kissinger Net Worth $10 Million

Born in Furth, Germany to parents Louis and Paula, Kissinger’s family was of Jewish decent. When Hitler rose to power and more and more Jews were being killed by the Nazis, their whole family flew to New York in 1938.

Upon arriving in the United States, Kissinger attended the George Washington High School, where he worked in the morning and studied at night. In college, he attended the City College of New York to become an accountant. In 1943, Kissinger was granted his US Citizenship, and only a few months later he joined the military. During his deployment in Germany, Kissinger decided that he didn’t want to be an accountant but instead an academic focusing on political history. Upon his return to the United States, Kissinger realized that dream and studied at Harvard University to get his Master’s and Doctorate Degrees in the Department of Government.

His early career started as a member of the faculty of Harvard University, where he built his reputation challenging ideas in Foreign Policy, while adding to his net worth. After 15 years, he left Harvard and served the public when President Richard Nixon appointed him as National Security Advisor, a position he held for six years, and then in 1973 he started working as the Secretary of State, until 1977.

During his time working for Nixon, Kissinger accomplished considerable achievements in terms of United States foreign relations with other countries. He helped ease the relations between the United States and China; he also brought détente with the Soviet Union which led to the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks, to name a few. However, his most notable work was his effort in the “Vietnamization Policy” where after years of the United States being involved in the Vietnam War where thousands of soldiers died and lots of finance was wasted, he was able to put an end to the war. He was able to create a plan and negotiated a cease fire with Vietnam. His efforts paid off and led to him winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 1973.

Even after his service as Secretary of State, he still served as a political adviser to later presidents, and as a consultant with some foreign governments, sometimes through his Kissinger company Kissinger Associates. Kissinger also authored numerous books which helped in his net worth. Some of the books were “The White House Years”, “Years of Upheaval”, and “On China” among others.

In terms of his personal life, Kissinger has two children with his first wife Ann Fleischer who he married in 1949, but they divorced in 1964. In 1974 he married his second wife Nancy Maginnes.
