May 1921

Title: The first class of undergraduates is granted degrees.

The first graduates included numerous veterans of World War One and other older students, who would go out into the world and advance the School’s legacy of a century of service. Willard Beaulac (SFS’21), the SFS’s “first graduate” alphabetically, is pictured on the timeline (on the left reading from a paper) receiving his credentials in Havana Cuba. He pursued a successful career in the United States Foreign Service, acting in the role of Ambassador to the countries of Paraguay, Colombia, Cuba, Chile, and Argentina.
