Ambassador John Gunther Dean

Ambassador John Gunther Dean, a U.S. Army World War II veteran, came to America in the late 1930s. A native German speaker, as well as being fluent in English, French and Dutch, was a perfect fit to work in the office of military intelligence at the infamous R.O. box 1142, a facility housing teams that interviewed prisoners of war. After World War II, Dean spent 39 years in the US Foreign Service eventually serving as the U.S. Ambassador to the Khmer Republic (Cambodia), Denmark, Lebanon, Thailand and India.

On Sept. 13, 2010, Ambassador Dean discusses his time in service.
