American attorney, politician and Ambassador to Japan.
In 1995, After losing his 1994 bid for re-election to the House of Representatives where he had been Speaker of the House since 1989, Foley returned to private life as an attorney. Foley later became chairman of President Bill Clinton's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board and was appointed ambassador to Japan in 1997, a post which he retained until 2001.
During his 30 years in the House, Foley spent much of his time in Japan, prying open the market for Washington products. While Japanese business procedure differs greatly from American in terms of speed and strategy, Foley was the natural choice for Ambassador, as even his adversaries remark on his sense of diplomacy. Soon after his arrival in Japan, Foley was joined by his wife of 30 years, Heather, whom Foley regards as his unpaid chief of staff.
He died in Washington, D.C. on 18 October 2013.
