John Foster Dulles (1888-1959)
Politician
Born in Washington, D.C., John Foster Dulles attended Princeton University and served as Major on the War Industries Board. In 1918, Woodrow Wilson made Dulles legal counsel to the U.S. delegation at the Versailles Peace Conference. He went on to serve on the War Reparations committee. 
 
In January 1953, President Dwight D. Eisenhower made Dulles Secretary of State. In that position, he spent much time building up NATO and was an important figure during the early Cold War era, fighting communism worldwide. Dulles supported the French war against the Viet Minh in Indochina and played a crucial role in the CIA’s overthrow of Iran’s Mossadegh government in 1953. 
 
Dulles was later awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom and Washington’s Dulles International Airport was named in his honor.
