Erratum in article in the July issue of the Foreign Service Journal focusing on "Ethics for the Professional Diplomat"
My minor contribution to the Foreign Service Journal's July issue focusing on “Ethics for the Professional Diplomat” contains an erratum: that my father's career in the Foreign Service was "with the U.S. Information Agency (1950-1968) [p. 36])." My father was not formally with the USIA; as I understand it, he was a State Department employee "on loan" to the USIA. And the USIA was established only in 1953.
The FSJ kindly and promptly responded to my pointing out the above matter by welcoming me to submit a brief letter "clarifying your father’s career for publication in the September issue."
