John Tuthill was a member of the class of 1932 at William & Mary, Ambassador to Brazil and one of the leaders in the 1969 Salzburg Global Seminar. Excerpts from New York Times obituary: John W. Tuthill, who served as United States Ambassador to the European Economic Community and to Brazil, died on Sept. 9 in a Washington hospital. He was 85 and lived in Washington. Mr. Tuthill, a highly regarded career diplomat, was Ambassador to the European Economic Community from 1962 to 1966. In 1964 he issued a warning in a speech to American businessmen visiting Brussels. Europeans, Mr. Tuthill told them, feared that American business was so powerful that it would eventually change Europe's way of life. Born in Montclair, N.J., he graduated from the College of William and Mary and received graduate degrees from Harvard and New York University. His diplomatic career extended from 1940 to 1969. His memoir, Some Things to Some Men: Serving in the Foreign Service, is to be published by Minerva Press.
