Elbert G. Mathews, accompanied by

his wife, Naomi M. Mathews, served

for 37 years in the Foreign Service in

five countries on three continents.

He was U.S. ambassador to Liberia in

1959 and U.S. ambassador to Nigeria

from 1964 to 1969. Naomi Mathews served as the AAFSW

president from 1970 to 1972 and participated in AAFSW’s

oral history program. The Mathews’ estate established this

scholarship in 2002. The couple had no children of their

own, but many who knew themwere not surprised by their

generous gift to promote the education of Foreign Service

children.

Thank you so much for making my

college costs more affordable with this

scholarship. I would not be where I am

today without generous donors like you.
