03 04 2007 - John Evans will be presented with distinguished Henry Morgenthau Award
Premio Henry Morgenthau a John Evans Ex-Ambasciatore USA in Armenia per il suo "Meritevole Servizio Pubblico" .....
May 2, 2007, /PanARMENIAN.Net/ On May 3rd, in Cambridge Massachusetts, Ambassador John Marshall Evans will be presented with the distinguished Henry Morgenthau Award for Meritorious Public Service. The Award is presented by the Armenian Assembly of America to a public official who has demonstrated exemplary leadership on behalf of the Armenian people and nation.

Grandson of the Ambassador to the Ottoman Empire at the time of the genocide, Henry Morgenthau III will be joined by Samantha Power, the Pulitzer Prize winning author of "A Problem from Hell: America and the Age of Genocide" and Professor of Practice of Global Leadership and Public Policy at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, for this auspicious occasion honoring Evans for speaking the truth.

Ambassador Evans is only the third recipient of the Morgenthau Award. The first U.S. Ambassador to Armenia Harry Gilmore was the first recipient on June 1, 1996. President of Armenia Robert Kocharian was awarded the honor on September 6, 1997.

Ambassador Evans is a true profile in courage. In 2005, while addressing Armenian-American communities across the country, the Ambassador re-affirmed the United States record and accurately described the events that took place from 1915 to 1923 as genocide. As a result of his public statements, Ambassador Evans' term of office was cut short by the Department of State. In addition, the American Foreign Service Association (AFSA) rescinded its Christian A. Herter Award for "constructive dissent" which Evans had received for his proper characterization of the Armenian Genocide. Ambassador Evans has since retired from the Foreign Service.

"Ambassador Evans is a man of principle and conviction," said Chairman of the Board of Trustees Hirair Hovnanian. "No one should be penalized for speaking the truth about the Armenian Genocide, especially a public official who has the responsibility of representing the United States abroad," Hovnanian added. "That is not the message our country should be sending to the rest of the world if we are to remain the bastion of democracy and freedom for people everywhere," the AAA reports.
