History of the Goodwill Ambassador

The idea of the day in the late 1930s well into the 21st century in America was that of the goodwill ambassador who has been a major component of the World's Fair since Chicago in 1933, they really needed the Goodwill Ambassador during the Great Depression. Most countries had their goodwill ambassadors demonstrating culture, customs, industry and technology at the World's Fair of 1939 and 1964. The goodwill ambassador is not an invention of the US government or the United Nations, it was spontaneous evolution and has become deeply embedded in American culture.
