From the Publisher
It is with great sadness that I inform our readers that Henry Mattox, Ph.D., one of the founders of our journal passed away. [LINK to News & Observer]

Dr. Henry Mattox. An Appreciation
As the two most recent Editors of American Diplomacy, we are called to honor the unique and lasting contributions that Henry Mattox made to our journal.  Henry, along with Frank Crigler, Bart Moon, Ed Williams and others of their generation, founded American Diplomacy Publishers, a 501 c 3 non-profit, twenty years ago. 
The first edition of this electronic journal appeared later that year, with Henry as its first and longest-serving editor.  Henry’s vision of an electronic journal (a rarity at the time), devoted to the topic of American diplomacy, drawing upon quality writings of scholars and students of foreign affairs as well as practitioners of diplomacy continues to this day. While technological enhancements and adjustments to changing reading habits have brought forward some improvements over the years, the quality of the writing and the overall contents of the journal remain unchanged. 
We can thank Henry Mattox and his co-founders for the steady foundation upon which American Diplomacy has been built.  We, successor editors and board members, are grateful to stand on the shoulders of the giants who came before us.  And we pledge our efforts to carry on the work of this remarkable scholar-diplomat, Dr. Henry Mattox in the years to come.
