THIS for Diplomats

THIS for Diplomats (originally The Hospitality and Information Service for Diplomatic Families) was organized in 1961 at the request of the Chief of Protocol of the United States, Angier Biddle Duke. Its initial mission was to provide African diplomats and their families with hospitality, information, help with housing and schools, etc., in a city that was still segregated. Leading Washington women, including Jacqueline Kennedy and subsequent First Ladies, devoted themselves to the cause and the organization was so successful that it rapidly expanded to cover all embassies. THIS became co-ed around 2000 but still has a primarily female membership.
