William Park Armstrong was the son of Dr. William Park Armstrong and Rebekah Sellers Purves Armstrong. He always used the suffix "Jr." after his name. Actually, he was Wm. Park Armstrong, III. Since his name has the "Jr" on his tombstone, we use it here.

William Park Armstrong had an interesting career.

After graduating from Princeton, Park married Kathryn Rogers of Selma, AL whom he met while visiting grandparents in Selma.  Grandparents were: Captain William Park Armstrong and Mary Alice Isbell Armstrong.

He began his career as a Wall Street banker.  Later he joined the State Department during WWII, ultimately serving as Special Assistant to the Secretary of State for Intelligence.  He then decided to join the Foreign Service (the diplomatic corps) in the mid 1950s and served as Minister to Spain and then Consul General to Toronto Canada.
