Diplomatic Career, 1950 - 1970

 Series
Reference Code: GBR/0014/JAKN 1

Scope and Contents

From the Fonds: The collection contains press cuttings and correspondence relating to Sir Geoffrey's kidnap, and 8-month captivity, by the Tupamaros while he was Ambassador to Uruguay in 1971. This experience is reflected in his subsequent writings, lectures, broadcasts and interests covered in the rest of the collection. There is relatively little material on Sir Geoffrey's earlier diplomatic career.
