The Ambassador’s Life: Richard “Dixie” Walker in South Korea
Curated by Brian Shetler
Richard Walker, a Drew University graduate (BA, 1944), was an international scholar, educator, leader in international studies, and Ambassador to South Korea. Serving in that position from 1981-1986, Walker’s tenure was the longest of any Korean Ambassador in U.S. history. This exhibition uncovers Walker’s life and experiences as ambassador. Along with his wife, Ceny, Walker made a significant impact on Korean-American relations in the 1980s and beyond. This exhibit celebrates Walker’s life and his longstanding role as an expert in foreign relations and Asian studies.
