.After 1917 he specialized in the bloody Balkans. At Lausanne he helped make peace and in Ismet Pasha, now Premier of Turkey, he has jocularly been said to have met his match. Both deaf, they shouted back & forth across the conference table at each other in French. Ten years later Mr. Grew, one of the first career men to be promoted to an Ambassadorship, became the first U. S. Ambassador to Dictator Kemal Pasha's new Republic.
Rear Admiral Mark L. Bristol was also the US High Commissioner to Turkey 1919-1926.

The State Department last week formally announced the appointment of Joseph C. Grew, Under Secretary of State, as Ambassador to Turkey, following the receipt of word from Constantinople that Mr. Grew was persona grata to the Turkish Government.
There has been no U. S. diplomatic representative in Constantinople since diplomatic relations with Turkey were broken off in 1917. Since 1919 Rear Admiral Mark L. Bristol (as High Commissioner) has represented the U. S. with great firmness but with warm sympathy toward Turkey. He will this autumn relieve Admiral Clarence S. Williams as commander-in-chief of the Asiatic Fleet.
