After the war, he founded an oil company in Texas, and later started his bid for state senator in the Texas House of Representatives.

Later, he was appointed by President Ford to serve Chief of the Liaison office in China and then the CIA Director. During his presidency, he ended the Cold War, which previously lasted for nearly half a century. He was instrumental in strengthening the U.S.-China relationship in the 1970s.
