George Wildman Ball (December 21, 1909 – May 26, 1994) was an American diplomat and banker. He was a prot?g? of Adlai Stevenson II and played a major role in his unsuccessful presidential campaigns of 1952 and 1956. He served in the top rank of the State Department, 1961-66, where he is most remembered as the only dissenter against the escalation of the Vietnam war. He refused to go public with his doubts, which were based on realistic calculations that South Vietnam was doomed. He also helped shape American policy regarding trade expansion, the Congo, the Multilateral Force, policy toward de GaulleFrance, Israel and the Middle East, and the Iranian revolution. Critics complain about his Eurocentrism, his elitism, and his indifference to social justice.
