ADST is an independent, non-profit organization located on the campus of the Department of State’s Foreign Service Institute at the National Foreign Affairs Training Center in Arlington, Virginia. Our 2500+ oral histories are available on this website and through the Library of Congress. We also facilitate the preparation of books and memoirs by diplomats, conduct educational outreach to high schools and universities, and support the work of the Foreign Service Institute. We receive no government funding and rely on generous donations from our members and donors, as well as grants, cooperative agreements, and in-kind support. All membership donations are tax-deductible.
