Congressional Fellows Join Seminar on Congress, Foreign Policy

Four Foreign Service Officers, chosen as this year's State Department Congressional Fellows, formed the nucleus of a new seminar on Congress and foreign policy instituted last fall. The course was sponsored by the Civil Service Commission and given by the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS). Named as the State Department's Congressional Fellows for 1971 were FSO's Werner Brandt, Keith Guthrie, Robert Fouche and Robert Holliday. They were joined in the preliminary SAIS course by officers from three other agencies dealing with foreign affairs: James Lynch of CIA, and John Cannon and Michael Canning of USIA. All are also participating in the Congressional Fellowship program. The SAIS seminar was designed to give the fellows grounding in the fundamentals of the congressional process, particularly as it relates to foreign affairs. The 60-day course ended in midNovember with the beginning of the regular Congressional Fellowship program for journalists, scholars and fellows designated by various parts of the Executive Branch.
