The President today announced that he will nominate Gordon R. Beyer, of Marathon, Fla., to be Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United States to Uganda. The Embassy at Kampala was officially reopened in June 1979, and Beyer would be the first Ambassador there since the resignation of Thomas Melady and the closing of the Embassy in 1973.

Beyer has been a Foreign Service officer since 1957 and is currently Director of the Office of East African Affairs at the State Department.

He was born October 13, 1930, in Chicago, Ill. He received an A.B. from Harvard College in 1952 and an M.A. from Northwestern University in 1953. He served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1953 to 1955.

Beyer joined the Foreign Service in 1957 and was posted in Bangkok, Yokohama, Mogadishu, and at the State Department. He attended the National War College in 1971-72. From 1972 to 1975, he was Deputy Chief of Mission in Dar es Salaam, and from 1975 to 1977, he was Deputy Director of Egyptian Affairs at the State Department. In 1977 he was Middle East liaison officer with the U.S. delegation to the U.N. General Assembly. He has been Director of the Office of East African Affairs since 1978.
