July 23, 1999 Amb. Kenneth Quinn
In 1999, as he was preparing to depart Cambodia at the conclusion of his three and a half year tour as Ambassador, the Embassy staff, including the Cambodian employees, held a special dinner to bid Ambassador Quinn and Le Son farewell. Some observers would note that similar to 2019, Ambassador Quinn's farewell dinners involved him dancing. Others might add that his style has not changed in 20 years. At the dinner, the head of the USAID Mission said that he had attended many similar type events during his career, but Ambassador Quinn was truly beloved by the entire Embassy staff.
