Over the course of his six-decade career, Claude A. Buss developed twin reputations: as a talented diplomat and as a pre-eminent scholar of Asian history and politics. They were well earned. As a statesman, he earned the respect and friendship of top-ranking officials in East and Southeast Asia, while as a professor, he taught and encouraged generations of America's best and brightest.
He is justly remembered as an extraordinary man whose advice and experience continue to influence leaders and policymakers in Southeast Asia and the United States.
