PREFACE



The Foreign Service List, issued quarterly by the Department of State, is
compiled primarily for use by the Department of State, the Foreign Service,
and other United States Government Agencies to provide information on the
assignments of Foreign Service personnel and other United States personnel
assigned overseas. The information it contains has also been found useful
by American business firms, various groups and individuals, and foreign
governments.

The List includes: chiefs of mission; Foreign Service officers; Foreign
Service Reserve officers; Foreign Service Staff officers of class nine and above;
Foreign Service Staff officers of class ten and eleven with the title "vice
consul" when assigned to a post having a complement of one, two or three
officers; and consular agents. Special sections are also included on officers of
the International Cooperation Administration, the United States Information
Agency, the Foreign Agricultural Service of the United States Department
of Agriculture, and the Departments of Army, Navy, and Air Force.

Personnel are listed in this publication at their respective posts, with their
titles, category, and class. The date of assignment listed for ambassadors
and ministers is the date of attestation and/or recess appointment; for all
other officers at the post, the effective date of transfer is listed except in
cases where a commission is involved for a consul general, consul, or vice
consul. This information is taken from personnel action forms.

The listing of personnel at each post is alphabetical with the exception of
the chief, the deputy chief of mission, and the principal officer who are listed
first under each post.

A section is also included giving data on the opening and closing of posts;
posts raised in rank and status; and other pertinent data.

Only those actions received by the Division of Publishing Services prior to
the fifteenth of the month preceding publication are included. Changes
occurring between the date of compilation and release of this publication are
not included in the List. Therefore, the List does not necessarily reflect the
current diplomatic or consular status of every individual listed. Users in
the United States may ascertain the current status of any officer of the
United States assigned to a Foreign Service post by communicating with the
Department of State, Washington 25, D. C. Users overseas may secure the
same information by communicating with the American Embassy or Lega-
tion in that country.

This List is compiled and edited by the Division of Publishing Services,

Department of State. Necessary corrections should be reported to that

Division.
