Chapter Summary

Münir Ertegün was the second ambassador from Turkey to serve in Washington after the First World War. Münir played an important role in the Lausanne Peace Conference in 1922-1923. At the conclusion of this service, he returned to Ankara as Chief Legal Adviser in 1924. After serving in this capacity as an Ankara-based official, Münir was given the first of the Foreign Service positions that would occupy the remainder of his life. Münir's contacts with the Department of State also worked smoothly and with evident warmth. When Atatürk died in November 1938, Münir came to the Under Secretary to thank him for designating a special representative to the funeral. However, this appreciation turned out to be premature, for the Ankara authorities were not pleased at the level of representation at the funeral.
