Gerard was a tribal relations officer for the Indian Health Service from 1957 to 1965. In 1966 and 1967, he was legislative liaison officer in the Bureau of Indian Affairs in Washington. He was Director of the Office for Indian Progress at the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare from 1967 to 1971.

From 1971 to 1976, Gerard was a professional staff member on the Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs. Since 1976, he has been self-employed as a lobbyist.
