Directors of the Foreign Operations Administration

Reorganization Plan No. 7 of 1953 (67 Stat. 639) established the Foreign Operations Administration to oversee foreign assistance programs previously administered by the Mutual Security Agency and the Technical Cooperation Administration. The Director was appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate. Executive Order 10610 of May 9, 1955, abolished the Foreign Operations Administration, after which its economic assistance passed to the International Cooperation Administration and its military assistance function to the Department of Defense.
