Introduction

 

Foy D. Kohler, former Toledoan and University of Toledo student, was a career diplomat.

He was present for the 1959 "kitchen debate" between Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev and then Vice-President Richard Nixon in 1959 and served as U.S. Ambassador to Moscow during the Cuban missile crisis in 1962.

After leaving Moscow in 1966, he became Deputy Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs. Upon his retirement in 1967, he spent several years teaching at the University of Miami's Center for Advanced International Studies.

Mr. Kohler was considered a member of the realist school of international politics which emphasized the importance of military, economic and political power in world affairs.

 The Foy D. Kohler papers contain material from the Ambassador's home and office files, dating from 1914-1990. There are some materials from his high school and university days, but the majority deal with Kohler's Foreign Service career.

Scope and Content Note

 

The Foy D. Kohler Papers document the work of a diplomat who specialized in Soviet affairs. The collection is from Kohler's home and office files; in general, any official documents included are writer's or information copies. The complete official flies are part of the records for the office itself; the researcher is advised to contact the National Archives and Records Service for the official State Department Records.

Ambassador Kohler had a long and successful career in the Foreign Service, achieving the highest rank (Career Ambassador) in his profession. His career included duty in Canada, Romania, Greece, the USSR, Turkey and, briefly, Egypt, Italy, Yugoslavia, Vietnam, Bolivia and Pakistan. His assignments at the State Department have included being a Country Specialist or "desk officer," an Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs and Deputy Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs. For four important years he was the American Ambassador to the USSR. He also served as the Director for the Voice of America, and was on the policy planning staff for State.

Kohler's second career was at the University of Miami, where he served as a professor and was on the staff of the Center for Advanced International Studies, a scholarly research and consultant group associated with the University.

The bulk of the collection begins with Kohler's entrance to the Foreign Service in 1931 and is best understood in relationship to his career. The Biographical Sketch which precedes this section provides a chronological listing of his Foreign Service postings. The collection is divided into the following series, each of which is explained below.

Correspondence

Speeches

Consultations and Conferences

Miscellaneous

Correspondence

Kohler's personal correspondence is in this series. During his career, Kohler came in contact with many prominent people; letters and telegrams from such leaders as Hubert Humphrey, Richard Nixon, Ambassadors Elbridge Durbrow, G. Lewis Jones, and Averell Harriman, and Twentieth Century Fox President Spyros Skouras are of interest. A subseries of Mrs. Kohler's correspondence from the years when her husband was ambassador is included. Most correspondence is arranged alphabetically by the correspondent's surname, and chronologically within the letter. Desk and appointment calendars for both the Kohlers are included in this series. They are arranged by type and date; years included are the late 19508 through the mid-1980s, though there are gaps.

An accretion in 1991 (listed on pages 38-40) includes extensive correspondence between Ambassador and Mrs. Kohler from 1935 to 1965. Mrs. Kohler's letters to Foy are listed among his other correspondents in this record group, and his letters to her are included among her correspondents in this group. Many of these letters span the period in the Kohlers' relationship prior to their marriage in 1935, and reveal the personal aspects of Foreign Service.

Ambassador Kohler's chronologies of his outgoing correspondence were also included in this addition to the collection, providing a "missing link" in this record group.

Speeches

As Kohler became more prominent in his field, he received more requests to appear as a speaker. The "Speeches" series has correspondence, itineraries, Kohler's notes for the speeches, transcripts and, occasionally, pamphlets about the organization where the speech was given. Kohler also prepared what he referred to as "Talking Notes" about subjects on which he frequently spoke, as well as for specific speeches. Where appropriate, there are separate folders for these notes. Correspondence with W. Colston Leigh, the agency handling the scheduling and fees for Kohler's speeches after 1967, is in the "Correspondence" series. The majority of the speeches date from the early 19608. Arrangement is by the date the speech was given.

Speeches dating from September 1949 to 1977 were added to the collection in 1991. These speech texts and notes include notes on conversations with Premier Nikita Khrushchev and other Soviet dignitaries, as well as an index to Kohler's consultations and Media Interviews dating from 1968 to 1978.

Consultations and Conferences

After retirement from State, Kohler was a regular consultant to advisory boards and panels. Files from these Washington meetings are interfiled with privately organized conferences within the series "Consultations and Conferences." Advisory panels include those for the Bureau of European Affairs; National Council on Marine Resources and Engineering Development; CIA Strategic Intelligence Panel; Career Ambassador Review Board; Bureau of Politico-Military Affairs; and the Chief of Naval Operations.

The series is from 1967 to 1978, and arrangement is by date. Each folder in the "Consultations and Conferences" series generally contains the prospectus and the proceedings of the particular conferences. Also included is correspondence between Kohler and the conference organizers. Kohler's handwritten notes can frequently be found in the folder.

Subject Files

Subject files consist entirely of material added to the collection in 1991 after the Kohler's death. The files, which include many types of materials, were maintained as a series out of respect for the provenance for the collection. They document a wide variety of topics, but are largely limited to the chronological period from the late 19608 to 1990. These papers document the wide variety of organizations and individuals with which the Kohlers were involved as well as their dedication, or lack thereof, to each group.

Two files titled "Gennany" are especially noteworthy in this series. These date from 1958 to 1959, a crucial period in east-west relations. Although the papers probably duplicate records held in the National Archives, they help to fill in gaps in this collection, and to further document Kohler's professional career

Topical

The "Topical" series contains Kohler's subject files, arranged into subseries that correspond to major areas of his career. Photographs and audio-visual recordings are also subseries under "Topical. If Because of processing at different times, the subseries are not in chronological order.

Under "Topical" will be found Kohler's files from the Center for Advanced International Studies (CAIS) and The University of Miami, comprised of correspondence and notes regarding projects and contracts undertaken by CAIS, meeting notes, course plans, lecture notes (the slides that accompany the lecture notes are under the Topical subseries "Photographs"), and notes on graduate students for whom Kohler was advisor.

Kohler's reference material and reports from his service at consulates, embassies and the State Department are in the subseries "Foreign Service." The four years as Ambassador to the USSR are part of this section; information on the renovation of the Ambassador's official residence ("Spaso House"), which was done under the direction of Mrs. Kohler, is here. The 1991 addition to the collection included many files pertaining to Kohler's appointments and assignments in the Foreign Service dating from 1926 to 1967. These files are listed chronologically in this series, and include files on the Voice of America, the International Cooperation Administration, and Kohler's presentation of his credentials in Moscow, 1962. Certain major assignments outside the "traditional" State Department tasks are arranged as separate subseries. These are: National War College, which has Kohler's notes from his time as a student, and information from the early 19708 when he returned to give guest lectures (see also the "Speeches" series); and Voice of America, containing information and reports from 1949-1952 when Kohler was director.

Other subseries under "Topical" are: American Foreign Service Association, of which Kohler was president; research reports, correspondence and annual reports from and about the Board for International Broadcasting (BIB), Radio Free Europe, and Radio Liberty (the latter two are organizationally subordinate to the BIB); reference material under "Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU)," which contains information on Soviet leaders and Soviet congresses; correspondence and reports of the Committee on the Present Danger; and school notes, papers, report cards and souvenirs, mainly from The Ohio State University, but also from Scott High School and earlier; and programs and certificates, mainly from the Methodist Church and its youth organizations, and the Toledo Junior Chamber of Commerce, under "Civic and Church Activities.

Photographic material, including prints, negatives, slides, and film, are in the subseries "Photographs." Both official State Department photographs and several taken by Kohler himself are here. Subject material ranges from vacation photos to shots of people and events in different countries (e.g., troops in early wartime Athens; May Day parades in Red Square) to portraits of Government leaders (some signed). Many photos, including one of Kohler with President John F. Kennedy and one with President Lyndon Johnson, as well as numerous photo albums dating from 1933 to 1983 were included in the 1991 accretion. There are three 16mm films. The first film is about Khrushchev's visit to the U.S., which Kohler organized on the American side. The second, on the Kremlin, has a scene of Kohler presenting his credentials as Ambassador; and the third depicts the life and work of an ambassador in Moscow, with interviews of both the Kohlers.

The recordings also include interviews of both Kohlers, as well as speeches given by the Ambassador and by others on subjects of interest to Kohler. Both photographic and recording materials are arranged by type, then date.

Clippings

By farthest largest series in this collection is the clippings series. Meticulously organized, most clippings were culled from The New York Times and the Foreign Broadcast Information Service: Daily Report, but some were also taken from the Peking Review, Radio liberty Research, and other publications. This series is divided into three subseries: "Personal," "Topical," and "Chronological." "Personal" clippings are those which deal with Kohler and his actions. "Topical" clippings cover particular events occurring over an extended period of time, such as Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU) congresses, the Berlin crisis of 1961, and Alexander Solzhenitsyn. The chronological subseries includes news stories relevant to Soviet foreign relations for the entire period covered by this collection; it is most complete for the period 19681978. Clippings are arranged chronologically by the date of publication. For 1968 to 1978, nearly every Soviet topic or event is included, as are translations of speeches by Soviet leaders and articles in the Soviet journal SShA [USA].

Access to the clippings is aided by typescript Soviet chronologies and by a card index maintained by Kohler, divided by topic.

Within the clippings series is a subseries of clippings that were not filed by Kohler with the indexed items. These are similarly divided, except that "Personal" and "Chronological" are included in one section.

 

Publications

Although the original order and organization of the files maintained by Kohler has in general been retained, a new series, "Publications," has been created. This consists largely of "think tank" reports and off prints of articles. Some are photocopies of manuscripts sent to Kohler for his comments. The researcher may wish to consult the correspondence series for the appropriate outgoing letters which would give his comments. The drafts and typescripts of Kohler's book, Understanding the Russians, and his wife's translation of the Marquis de Custine's journal (Journey for Our Time) are in this series, along with correspondence and reviews relating to the books.

 

Miscellaneous

Miscellaneous materials include maps and tour guides collected by the Kohlers over the years; diplomas, certificates, and awards held by Ambassador and Mrs. Kohler, and many prints, maps, and other artifacts. In 1991, a sub-series, "travel," was added to this section of the collection. It includes itineraries, brochures, and other documents related to the Kohlers' professional and recreational travel from 1957 to 1971.

Oversized Items

Oversize items are incorporated in the folder list within the series or subseries to which they would logically belong. A number is assigned that refers to the box, flat, or item itself. A separate listing of all oversize items is included as an appendix.
