Summary
  • "David R. Francis held the post of the United States ambassador to Russia from April 1916 to November 1918, and represented his country before four Russian governments: the Imperial, Provisional, Soviet, and Northern ones. He was an eyewitness of the greatest events in the history of Russia, and met prominent figures such as Nicholas II and Vladimir Lenin. His diplomatic experience was unique and had no parallel in the history of Russian-American relations."--
