Flashback: January 1980

The cover of the January 1980 issue of State Magazine (The Department of State Newsletter) shows a man and woman standing in front of a building in black and white.

Then-U.S. Ambassador to Yemen George M. Lane and his wife, Betsy, appeared on the cover of Department of State Newsletter Issue 219 in front of their residence at Embassy Sana’a, which was being recognized as the publication’s first Post of the Month. This recurring series has since become State Magazine’s most popular monthly feature, with staff at American embassies and consulates around the world reserving a spot to highlight their post up to a year in advance.
