Julia Vadala Taft

Our condolences to William Howard Taft, IV, and the entire Taft family on the passing of Julia Vadala Taft. Julia Taft was, among many things, a former assistant secretary of state for the Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration and a former director of the UN Bureau for Crisis Prevention and Recovery. She was, by all accounts, a remarkable person.
