Capturing the Legacy of Public Diplomats: ADST’s Oral History Program
Since 1986, the Foreign Affairs Oral History Program of the Association for Diplomatic Studies and Training (ADST) has recorded more than 2600 interviews with former participants in the U.S. foreign affairs process. Collectively, these oral histories span over 80 years. The archive includes interviews with, among others, former ambassadors, retirees from the Foreign Service, State Department, USAID, and USIA, and with Foreign Service Nationals and Foreign Service spouses. In 2022, ADST received the Society for History in the Federal Government (SHFG) Award for Special Service to the Historical Profession.

This event will be presented as a hybrid program in collaboration with George Washington University’s Institute for Public Diplomacy and Global Communication. The in-person program will include a light lunch, and thus RSVPs are required by March 3, 2023; it will take place at the Lindner Family Commons of the Elliott School of International Affairs. The event will also be presented via Zoom, for which a separate RSVP is required in order to receive the link.

Speakers: Amb. Susan Rockwell Johnson, President, Association for Diplomatic Studies and Training; Donald M. Bishop, holder of the Donald Bren Chair of Strategic Communications at the Marine Corps University and President Emeritus of the Public Diplomacy Council; and Dr. Judith R. Baroody, Foreign Service Officer (Ret.) and former Executive Director of ADST.
