The President today announced that he will nominate David B. Bolen, of Boulder, Colo., to be Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United States to the German Democratic Republic, which position has been vacant since the resignation of John Sherman Cooper. Bolen is Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs.

Bolen was born December 23, 1923, in Heflin, La. He received a B.S. and M.S. from the University of Colorado in 1950, and an M.P.A. from Harvard University in 1960. He served in the U.S. Air Force from 1943 to 1946.

From 1950 to 1952, Bolen was administrative assistant and consular and reporting officer in Monrovia. He was an economic assistant in Karachi from 1952 to 1954 and was detailed to the Commerce Department from 1955 to 1957. In 1957 and 1958, he was an international economist at the State Department.

Bolen was Afghanistan desk officer in 1958 and 1959 and chief of the economic section in Accra from 1960 to 1962. From 1962 to 1964, he was staff assistant to the Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs. From 1964 to 1966, he was officer in charge of Nigerian affairs, and in 1966-67 he attended the National War College.

From 1967 to 1972, Bolen was economic officer, then counselor of economic affairs, in Bonn. From 1972 to 1973, he was counselor of the Embassy for economic affairs in Belgrade. He served as Ambassador to Botswana, Lesotho, and Swaziland from 1973 until 1976, when he became Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs.
