Ellsworth Bunker

Ellsworth Bunker (May 11, 1894 - September 30, 1984) was U.S. ambassador to South Vietnam, 1967-73. Bunker forged a reputation as an accomplished statesman prior to his assignment to South Vietnam. Once in Saigon, he strongly supported the war efforts of Presidents Johnson and Nixon, going so far as to applaud US incursions into Laos and Cambodia. Following the conclusion of the Vietnam War, Bunker headed the US team involved in the drawing up of the 1978 Panama treaty[?].
