His diplomatic career included working as Africa researcher for the Office of the Coordinator of Information (later the Office of Strategic Services) (1941-1944); area specialist on Africa for the United States State Department (1944-1947); member of the U.S. delegation to United Nation's conference at Dumbarton Oaks (1945); advisor to U.S. delegation to the U.N.
