Oral histories available through the Association for Diplomatic Studies and Training (ADST)
The Association for Diplomatic Studies and Training (ADST) is an NGO located on the campus of the Dept of State's Foreign Service Institute. For the past 26 years it has conducted oral histories with over 1800 Foreign Service officers and others regarding the conduct and formulation of U.S. foreign policy.
These oral histories are available at: http://adst.org/oral-history/oral-history-interviews/
In addition, we also have excerpted some of the more interesting stories into articles we call Moments in Diplomatic History. These cover everything from the bombing of Embassy Nairobi and the assassination of Ambassador Spike Dubs in Kabul to amusing anecdotes. These can be found at: http://adst.org/moments/
Much of our material has already been used by scholars and historians and is also archived at the Library of Congress.
