Myles Standish Marseille Vice Consul #france

Thomas F. Weiss

Dear fellow JGenners,

My mother and my entry visa into the United States were both signed
in 1941 by Myles Standish, Vice Consul of the American Consulate in
Marseille. He was a colleague of Hiram BIngham, who has been
posthumously honored for his conscientious stand on behalf of
refugees against State Department orders. His career ultimately
suffered for his stand. A commemorative stamp has been issued for
him, he has gotten a State Department commendation, and was honored
by Yad Vashem.

Myles Standish worked closely with Bingham, suffered professionally
for his moral stand, but his good works have not been recognized. I
am researching the life of this man with the intention of honoring
him for his works. Unfortunately he is no longer alive but some of
this family members are.

I would like to hear >from anyone who has any knowledge of Myles
Standish. Are there people out there whom he helped? Please reply
