      The book states that he was US Ambassador from 1944 - 1947 but he arrived in
      Warsaw in July 1945 shortly after US recognized Polish Government in Warsaw. So
      maybe he was first assigned to the Government in Exile. His resignation in
      protest of 1947 "election" didn't make any impression on the Secretary w State.
      He became personal friend of my uncle Dr. Tadeusz Rakowski who at that time was
      Director of Cabinet of Polish Foreign Minister Rzymowski, pre war socialist.
      Rzymowski prior of his living office nominated uncle as Consul General in
      Montreal replacing father of Zbigniew Brzezinski. Two years later ambassador
      Bliss Lane helped uncle to get political asylum in US and they remain friends
      until his death.
