Abby, Here's a biographical sketch I wrote a few years ago, "Warder Cresson: America's First Consul to Jerusalem," in Michael Feldberg, Blessings of Freedom (New York: The American Jewish Historical Society, 2002), pp. 208-209.
The JER has recently published an essay on consuls by Simeon A. Simeonov, which you can find at the link below. You can also read more about his work at our online platform Panorama, linked below.
Co-Editor, Journal of the Early Republic
I'm trying to find scholars who have run across interesting American consuls in their work. I'm hoping to start a podcast focusing on consuls and their worlds, so I'm looking for people who have great stories about consuls. If that's you, would you please reach out? You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
