In which he identifies by name and position the journal’s parent organization Board of Directors, with special reference to additions since the journal’s founding in 1996.

IN PREVIOUS ISSUESVolume II, Numbers 1 and 2—we provided biographic information on the nine members of the journal’s Editorial Advisory Board. That list of advisors remains unchanged. You may click here to see the current listing posted as an integral part of each issue.

In this brief notice we apprise our readers of the membership of something slightly different: the full Board of Directors of American Diplomacy Publishers, or ADP, the parent organization of American Diplomacy. (ADP is a nonprofit corporation organized January 5, 1998, under the laws of North Carolina and formally recognized by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service as tax-exempt under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.)

ADP’s overall policy guidance body as currently constituted includes the original nine Editorial Advisory Board members, dating back to 1996 when the first issue of American Diplomacy hit the Web stands, plus five distinguished individuals who have agreed subsequent to the journal’s founding to lend their names and support to our efforts in the Internet publishing field.

Following we list alphabetically the names and positions of the somewhat recent additions to the governing body of this journal:


  • Ambassador Hermann Fr. Eilts, U.S. Foreign Service, retired, and Emeritus Professor of International Relations at Boston University. Resident at Wellesley, Massachusetts.
  • Dr. Michael H. Hunt, Emerson Professor and Director of Graduate Studies, Department of History, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
  • Ambassador Ronald D. Palmer, U.S. Foreign Service, retired; Professor and Diplomat in Residence, Elliott School of International Affairs, George Washington University, Washington, DC.
  • Dr. Alex Roland, Professor and Chair, Department of History, Duke University, Durham, North Carolina.
  • Ambassador Francis T. Underhill, U.S. Foreign Service, retired. Resident at Flat Rock, North Carolina.

It goes without saying, almost, that we on
American Diplomacy take great pride and satisfaction from our association with the outstanding array of talent and experience which now makes up the full Board of Directors. Publisher Frank Crigler and I appreciate greatly the contributions of all of our associates and advisors.

~ Ed.
