Smith Hempstone; U.S. Ambassador to Kenya - November 19, 2006

Mr. Hempstone had covered the advent of Kenya's independence for the Chicago Daily News and wrote two well-received modern histories of the region. He went on to work for the Washington Star, which his mother's family once owned, and the Washington Times, where he briefly was the top newsroom editor in the mid-1980s.
