Sir Geoffrey Harrington Thompson G.B.E., K.C.M.G.1

M, b. 12 March 1898, d. 26 January 1967
     Sir Geoffrey Harrington Thompson G.B.E., K.C.M.G. was born on 12 March 1898 in Ootacamund, India.1 He married firstly Louise Crosby Sewall, daughter of Oscar Trufant Sewall and Josefa Neilson Crosby, in March 1926 in New York.1,2 Sir Geoffrey Harrington Thompson G.B.E., K.C.M.G. and Louise Crosby Sewall were divorced in 1943.1 Sir Geoffrey Harrington Thompson G.B.E., K.C.M.G. died on 26 January 1967 in Folkestone, Kent, at the age of 68


AMBASSADOR TO BRAZIL
Sir Geofrey Thompson, G.B.E., K.C.M.G., who died on Thursday at the age of 68, was British Ambassador in Bangkok from 1947 to 1950 and British Ambassador to Brazil from 1952 to 1956.
Geoffrey Harrington Thompson, the son of Lieutenant-Colonel C. M. Thompson, I.M.S. was born
March 12, 1879,and educated at Eastmans, Southsea, and Westminster. He served in the R.F.A. in France and Flanders in the First World War and was wounded in 1917. Soon after he was demobilized he passed into the Diplomatic Service. His first posting, like his last, was to Rio de Janeiro. There was a revolution both times. His second stay in Brazil was marred by a revolt and the suicide of General Vary; In the 1920s and 1930s he served in Washington and Chile, and at Yalencia and Hendaye during the Spanish Civil War.
In his reminiscences Front Line Diplomat (1959), a very apt title, he wrote vividly of the struggle, during which he was constantly in danger. During the Second World War he was in Ankara and Baghdad, and after the war was successively Minister and Ambassador in Bangkok. Never for him the life that popular imagination believes diplomatists live, conferences and negotiations sandwiched by good dinners and cocktail parties; for it was during his time in Bangkok that the violent struggle between Army and Navy took place to be settled by Marshal Pibul. Perhaps the chief event from a British point of view was the conclusion of the Anglo-Siamese rice agreement. Thompson did equally good work as Ambassador in Brazil during the sterling crisis of 1953 when Anglo-Brazilian trade virtually collapsed and Brazil's arrears of sterling reached £64m. he played a prominent part in the difficult negotiators for an agreement.
He married in 1926 Louise Sewall, by whom he had a son and a daughter. The marriage was dissolved in 1943 and he married secondly Hilda, daughter of the Rev. D. Westcott.1
