    Shirley Temple Black subsequently became involved in Republican Party politics, unsuccessfully entering a Congressional race in 1967 on a pro-war platform. She went on to hold several diplomatic posts, serving as America's delegate to many international conferences and summits. She was appointed American ambassador to Ghana (1974–76). In 1976, she became the first female Chief of Protocol of the United States which put in her charge of all State Department ceremonies, visits, gifts to foreign leaders and co-ordination of protocol issues with all US embassies and consulates. She was ambassador to Czechoslovakia (1989–92) and witnessed the Velvet Revolution, about which she commented, "That was the best job I ever had." In 1987 she was designated the first Honorary Foreign Service Officer in US history by then US Secretary of State, George Schultz.
