About the Book
John M. Mutz served as Lieutenant Governor of Indiana from 1981 to 1989. He was the person most responsible for bringing the Subaru plant to Lafayette, a move that reinvigorated manufacturing in the Hoosier State. This work is a collaboration between Mutz and historian Edward O. Frantz and examines all facets of Mutz’s life.
Mutz’s life in electoral politics is the portion of his life that was most public and most familiar to its readers. After a loss in the 1988 Governor’s race, Mutz served as president of Lilly Endowment Inc. and PSI Energy before helping to create the Lumina Foundation in 2000. Mutz reflects on his life in philanthropy and on corporate boards in chapters that constitute the final portions of the manuscript. Mutz’s gratitude about the life that he has been able to lead is the motivating force behind An Examined Life. This book represents a culminating contribution to Indiana’s civic life by imparting the life experiences of a man who uniquely merged politics, business, and philanthropy.
