Today the U.S. Embassy in France sits on the northwest corner of historic Place de la Concorde, a site personally selected by Stephen Porter, author of the Porter Act, in 1928. But it took many years for the U.S. Chancery to have a permanent home in Paris.
The U.S. Ambassador’s residence in Paris is a landmark U.S. property abroad under the stewardship of the Department of State Cultural Heritage Program. The U.S. Government is committed to preserving and maintaining this important venue, one that reflects French history, culture, and continues to serve the Franco-American relationship.
A building built for diplomacy, the George C. Marshall Center in the Hôtel de Talleyrand is a unique venue for French-American diplomacy that reflects the rich, intertwined history and cultural heritage of the two countries.
The stories of France-based U.S. diplomats, consuls, and their family members from 1914 until 1918 have long been overshadowed by subsequent events of the twentieth century, making this 30-page narrative an important addition to today's understanding of the war.
The embassy became a nucleus of partnerships that provided for financial relief and medical aid to those in France impacted by the war. Assisted by a corps of U.S. citizens who volunteered their time, energy, and funds, U.S. diplomats and consuls developed new relationships with each other, the Government of France, and the French public. Their actions shaped public memory of the Franco-American partnership in 1914 and beyond.
This timeline highlights the actions, observations and instructions undertaken by and given to members of the U.S. diplomatic community in France during the war's first months. It is compiled from publicly available, declassified documents from U.S. Government and Government of France archives, as well as collections of personal correspondence.
