Obituary in "Homer Index", Homer, Calhoun, Michigan, August 2, 2000:

Robert Bolton Warner, 78, of Washington D.C. and formerly of Homer, MI, died.

Mr. Warner, a retired U.S. Information Agency foreign service officer, died of a brain tumor at Washington Hospice.

The Homer High School graduate [1939] joined the State Department in 1950, transferred to USIA in 1961, and retired in 1984.

His early years with State included postings in Britain and Germany.

With the USIA, Mr. Warner served in Yugoslavia, and as public affairs counselor at the U.S. embassy in Prague from 1965 to 1968.

He also had been chief of the European division of the Voice of America.

His last assignment was senior inspection officer in USIA's Inspections Office.

He was a 1968 recipient of USIA's Meritorious Service Award for his work in Czechoslovakia during and after the historic "Prague Spring" of that year.

He helped develop contacts with such rising intellectuals as the writer Vaclav Havel, a future president of Czechoslovakia and the Czech Republic.

In retirement, Mr. Warner had done consulting work promoting private investments in the Czech Republic.

He did volunteer work in Washington at St. Luke's Methodist Church's homeless shelter, where he became known as "King of the Meatloaf Dinner."

During the 1988 presidential campaign, he was a full-time volunteer staffer at Bush-Quayle Republican presidential campaign headquarters.

Mr. Warner, who was born in Chicago and grew up in Homer, served with the Army in Europe during World War II.

A graduate of Western Michigan University, he received a master's degree in international relations and a certificate in Eastern European Studies from Columbia University.

Survivors include his wife, Iza G. Warner of Washington; two daughters, Daphne Anne Warner of New York and Barbara W. Arnold of Washington; and three grandchildren.
