United States Foreign Operations Administration
The Foreign Operations Administration was created in 1953 under the directorship of Harold Stassen. Its purpose "was intended to centralize all governmental operations, as distinguished from policy formulation, that had as their purpose the cooperative development of economic and military strength among the nations of the free world". It was abolished by Executive Order 10610 on May 9, 1955. Its functions were split and transferred to the United States Department of State and the United States Department of Defense.
