Theranos Connection: Perhaps most infamously, George Shultz was a member of the Board of disgraced blood company Theranos. He arranged for his grandson Tyler to get a job at Theranos. Tyler would ultimately be one of the primary whistle blowers who helped expose the Theranos fraud. George did not believe his grandson's claims and at one point reportedly tried to strong arm Tyler into recanting his statements because he blindly believed in Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes. George and Tyler reportedly no longer speak to each other. George is a subject of the 2019 HBO documentary about Theranos called "The Inventor".
