Back in 2010, while I was still at George Washington University, I had the good fortune to conduct a lengthly, on camera interview with Walter Roberts -- a broadcaster, diplomat and scholar who lived a long, extraordinary life in public diplomacy.
the Walter R. Roberts Endowment.
Walter passed away in June 2014, at 97, remarkably lucid and insightful to the very end. Last month, at a memorial gathering at GW's Elliot School, Walter's family was joined by many former colleagues, friends and admirers who paid tribute to this remarkable man and shared their memories of his good and grand life. I propose to do the same here, by sharing excerpts from the 2010 interview that shed light on his life and career.
