State Department Officer Gets Ambassador Nod
NEW YORK (AP) _ President Bush will nominate Curtis W. Kamman, a senior career officer in the State Department, as ambassador to Chile, the White House said Tuesday.
Kamman, 52, a deputy assistant secretary of state for European and Canadian affairs, would succeed Charles A. Gillespie Jr.
A graduate of Yale University, Kamman recently went on a presidential mission to the Baltics after Bush granted full recognition to the three breakaway republics.
Bush was here holding talks with foreign leaders.
