On Monday, February 8, the Hauenstein Center was proud to confer its highest honor, the COL Ralph W. Hauenstein Fellowship, to Ambassador John Beyrle. John Beyrle served as an American diplomat for three decades, in foreign postings and domestic assignments focused on Central and Eastern Europe, the Soviet Union, and Russia. After his appointment to Bulgaria (2005-’08), he was appointed as ambassador to Russia (2008-’12). During the latter assignment he helped implement policies that led to improved US-Russian relations, highlighted by the signing of the START nuclear arms reduction treaty, Russia’s accession to the World Trade Organization, and liberalized visa and travel protocols.
