Hugh Carter Jr.: He Pinched Pennies for a President

From a New York Times obit by Neil Genzlinger headlined “Hugh Carter Jr., Who Pinched Pennies for a President, Dies at 80”:

Hugh Carter Jr., who helped run the presidential campaign of his cousin Jimmy Carter, then became an aide in charge of reining in the White House budget, earning the nickname “Cousin Cheap” among staff members, died at his home in Tampa, Fla.

President Carter’s grandson, Jason, said on the website of the Carter Center, the human rights organization founded by President Carter, that Hugh Carter “was crucial in my grandfather’s election as president by organizing the famous Peanut Brigade, and he skillfully implemented true zero-based budgeting within my grandfather’s White House.”
