Jefferson Caffery
Birth: Dec. 1, 1886
Death: Apr. 13, 1974

One of the most active diplomats in American history, he served as ambassador to Salvador (1926-28), Colombia (1928-33), Cuba (1934-37), Brazil (1937-44), France (1944-49), and Egypt (1949-55). He also worked in various lower diplomatic positions in Germany, Japan, Greece, Sweden, Venezuela, and Persia. In 1933, Caffery briefly served as Assistant Secretary of State under Cordell Hull. He and his wife are buried in a private garden, right behind one of the cathedral's office buildings, along the sidewalk which runs directly behind the cathedral. (bio by: Joel Manuel)
