Paul H. O'Neill, former treasury secretary, Alcoa giant and Pitt trustee, dies at 84

O'Neill, whose 13-year career at Pittsburgh-based Alcoa Corp. became the stuff of legends after he made zero workplace injuries a company mantra, died April 18, 2020, at his Shadyside home.

Following his retirement as chair of Alcoa, O'Neill served as Treasury secretary under President George W. Bush for 11 months until December 2002. He was a Pitt trustee from 1988 to 1991 and a UPMC trustee from 2003 to 2004.
