Paul Anthony Samuelson (1915-2009) is widely recognized as one of the leading Keynesian economists in the decades after the Second World War, working alongside his MIT colleagues Robert Solow and Franco Modigliani. He helped develop the Keynesian theory in the 1940s; he helped propagate the theory through his textbook, Economics: An Introductory Analysis; with Robert Solow he popularized the idea of the Phillips curve; and he was one of the main advisers to the Kennedy administration.
