The Ambassadors for Friendship program was founded by Harry Morgan in 1960 at Macalester. Harry Morgan was associate director at Reader’s Digest. He told DeWitt Wallace (’11) about his idea of bringing together international students from around the world that would travel the country and experience the real America. Wallace liked the idea and sent Harry to Macalester where he formally began the Ambassadors for Friendship program. The program took place during the summer break. American students drove a tour of international students around the United States, giving them the chance to see many different parts of America.
