Manuel F. Cohen
Manuel F. Cohen (October 9, 1912 – June 16, 1977) served as chairman of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission between 1964 and 1969 and also served as a member from 1961-1969.
During his tenure, the breadth of the prohibitions against insider trading, which had been developed earlier under Chairman William L. Cary, grew substantially as the SEC began to bring the key cases that developed the theories of insider trading on which the Commission relies today.
