The Cardinal In The Chancery And Other Recollections

By Alfred Puhan

Vantage Press, 1990, 228 pp.

Born in Germany in 1913, Ambassador Puhan came to the United States as a youth, played an important role in Voice of America radio broadcasts to Germany during World War II, and in 1952 joined the foreign service. He served as ambassador to Hungary, 1969-73. The title of this entertaining memoir refers to Joszef Cardinal Mindszenty's awkward residence in the American embassy at that time.
