Biographical note on Ulysses S. Grant-Smith
Grant-Smith was originally from Washington County, Pennsylvania. A career foreign service officer, he arrived in Copenhagen on 18 July 1917, to take up the position of Counselor at the US Legation there. Less than five months later, upon Minister Maurice Egan's departure on 16 December, he became Chargé d'Affaires and the ranking US representative in Denmark. He remained Chargé for over a year, until the arrival of the new US Minister, Norman Hapgood, on April 16, 1919. On September 18, 1919 Grant-Smith left Copenhagen, and was declared eligible for a new diplomatic assignment. On December 4, 1919 he was appointed US Commissioner to Hungary. In 1922, he became the first U.S. Minister to Albania. Grant-Smith was appointed to the post in September 1922 by President Warren G. Harding, and arrived in Tirana in December of the same year. He served through February 8, 1925, and was then made Minister to Uruguay from 1925 to 1929. Grant-Smith died in 1959.
