Directed by Charles Stuart Kennedy, the Foreign Affairs Oral History program is one of the major activities of the Association for Diplomatic Studies and Training (ADST). Since its inauguration in the 1980s, Kennedy and his colleagues have conducted more than 2,400 interviews of retired Foreign Service Officers and others closely associated with America’s recent diplomatic history.
In addition to individual interviews, “Country and Subject Readers” have been assembled giving reminiscences of those who served in particular countries or dealt with specific topics. ADST also highlights compelling moments in U.S. diplomatic history from their oral histories. Further information can be obtained from the Association for Diplomatic Studies and Training.
