W. Walton Butterworth Papers
Papers document the foreign service career of W. Walton Butterworth (1903-1975). Material consists mainly of correspondence and speeches as well as clippings, printed material, and photographs that Butterworth saved during his career. Although the majority of correspondence is congratulatory in nature, correspondence between Butterworth and GCM can be found here. Some of it relates to GCM’s 1946 China Mission and some to his presidency of the American Red Cross in 1950. Butterworth’s speeches reflect the issues in each area where he served: American Ambassador in Nanking, China; American Ambassador to Sweden; American Minister to London; U.S. Representative to the European Communities; and U.S. Ambassador to Canada.
