Patricia Price Bailey is a Commissioner of the Federal Trade Commission. Her initial oath of office was administered October 29, 1979 by Judge Patricia Wald of the US Court of Appeals. She was reappointed in September 1980 for a seven-year term expiring September 26, 1987. Before her appointment to the Commission, Ms. Bailey's career spanned twenty years in intelligence, international economic development, foreign policy, domestic politics, the problems and needs of the federal judiciary, and federal civil service reform. She has held positions in executive agencies, on Capitol Hill, in an independent regulatory agency, and in domestic political campaigns. Ms. Bailey began her career in 1960 at the Department of State in Washington, DC. In 1961, she joined the Agency for International Development as Special Assistant to the Director of the Latin America Bureau. During the next five years, first as Assistant Desk Officer, then as Desk Officer, she developed and implemented economic assistance programs for two Latin American countries and was the State Department's political advisor for two others. Later she was named Executive Assistant to the Bureau for Latin America at AID and Assistant to the Coordinator of the Alliance for Progress. Ms. Bailey left AID to become foreign affairs advisor to US Representative F. Bradford Morse of Massachusetts. In 1976, working in the White House Counsel's Office, Ms. Bailey prepared a message to the Congress on the needs of the federal judiciary. She then moved on to the Department of Justice as Special Assistant to the Assistant Attorney General for Improvements in the Administration of Justice. Immediately before coming to the Commission, Ms. Bailey was Executive Legal Assistant to the General Counsel of the Merit Systems Protection Board and assisted in the initial organization of that new agency created in 1979 by the Civil Service Reform Act. Ms. Bailey received a bachelor of arts degree with honors from Lindenwood College in St. Charles, Missouri. She earned a master's degree in international affairs from The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts, and received her JD degree summa cum laude from The American University Law School in Washington, DC.
