Cyrus Vance

Cyrus Roberts Vance (March 27, 1917–January 12, 2002) was an American lawyer and civil servant. He served as the United States Secretary of State under President Jimmy Carter from 1977 to 1980. Prior to his service as Secretary of State, he held a number of executive positions, including the Secretary of the Army and the Deputy Secretary of Defense.  As Secretary of State, Vance approached foreign policy with an emphasis on negotiation over conflict and a special interest in arms reduction. In April 1980, Vance resigned in protest of Operation Eagle Claw, the secret mission to rescue American hostages in Iran. He was succeeded by Edmund Muskie.

Early life and education 
Vance was born in Clarksburg, West Virginia. He graduated from Kent School in 1935 and received a bachelor's degree in 1939 from Yale University, where he was a member of the secret society Scroll and Key. He also earned three letters in ice hockey at Yale. He graduated from Yale Law School in 1942.

Military and legal career 
Vance enlisted in the U.S. Navy V-7 program as a midshipman, 1942, and graduated as an ensign in the Naval Reserve; became an instructor in naval ordnance at Prairie State Midshipman's School, New York City, 1942-1943; served on destroyers in the Atlantic and Pacific regions, 1943-1946, completing duty as a lieutenant. He served as a gunnery officer on the destroyer USS Hale DD-642 from commissioning in 1943 until the end of WWII, and then joined the law firm Simpson Thacher & Bartlett in New York City, before entering government services.
