dc.contributor.authorVan Voorst, Bruce
dc.description.abstractBIOGRAPHICAL NOTE|Starting in 1962, Mr. Van Voorst's assignments have taken him to and involved him in foreign affairs reporting in our capital, Cyprus, Kenya, the 1964 Panama riots, every country of Latin America - twice, and the Dominican Republic in 1965 on the heels of the US 101st Airborne. In Europe he had been on the scene of Spain in 1966, the Greek revolution in 1967, Czechoslovakia in 1968, and the Helsinki in 1969. In 1970 he made several trips to Jordan and Syria to cover the revolt there. As Boon-Munich Chief he has traveled extensivly in both Germanies; and the monetary crisis took him all over Europe in 1971.en_US
dc.description.abstractANNECDOTE| Van Voorst kindly offered to line up in Bonn an evening of festivities for my Travel-Study Program students when we arrive in January; he also arranged a tour bus and foreign policy briefings with officials of the German Federal Republic in the Bundestag. These experiences greatly enhanced Creighton's program.en_US
dc.description.abstractSUMMARY| He covered the "major trends in Europe", criticized the "Connally shock technique" for putting across Nixonomics. He played down Strategic Arms Limitation Talks and played up the IMF's Special Drawing Rights, and warned of the "Soviets mounting a serious diplomatic offensive in Europe, hoping for neutralization of Europe politically and militarily."en_US
