Ronald Kenneth Noble was Secretary General of Interpol for 14 years


In 1994, after Frank Eugene Corder crashed a plane onto the south lawn of the White House[1] Secretary of the Treasury Lloyd Bentsen directed Under Secretary Noble and Secret Service director Eljay B. Bowron to conduct a "thorough and comprehensive" investigation into the circumstances leading to the plane crash.[2][3] In 1995, a public report of the White House Security Review was published, with President Bill Clinton accepting all its recommendations and announcing the closure of the portion of Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the White House on May 21, 1995, restricting movement only to pedestrian traffic to eliminate the threat of any potential car bomb or truck bomb attacks,[4] as well as changes to air traffic rules and other security measures.[3]

In 1996, Noble returned to the New York University School of Law, whose faculty he had joined three years earlier, to continue working as a tenured professor. In 1998, he participated as a witness for the defence during the Clinton impeachment trial.[5]

In 1998, with the support of US Attorney General Janet Reno and FBI director Louis Freeh, Noble applied to succeed Raymond Kendall as secretary-general of Interpol.
