The President today announced that he will nominate William L. Swing, of Lexington, N.C., to be Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United States to the People's Republic of the Congo. He would be the first Ambassador to the People's Republic of the Congo since our resumption of diplomatic relations in June 1977.

Swing was born September 11, 1934, in Lexington, N.C. He received a B.A. from Catawba College in 1956 and an M.Div. from Yale University in 1960.

In 1961 Swing was a schoolteacher in Germany, and from 1961 to 1963, he was associate director of the Council on Religion in Independent Schools in New York. He joined the Foreign Service in 1963 and took consular and African area studies at the Foreign Service Institute.

From 1964 to 1966, Swing was vice consul in Port Elizabeth, and from 1966 to 1967, he was an international economist at the State Department. From 1968 to 1972, he was head of the visa section, then chief of the consular section, in Hamburg.

Swing was desk officer for the Federal Republic of Germany at the State Department from 1972 to 1974. From 1974 to 1976, he was Deputy Chief of Mission in Bangui.

In 1976-77 Swing was a fellow at the Harvard University Center for International Affairs. Since 1977 he has been Alternate Director of the Office of Central African Affairs at the State Department.
