Tony Doggett
« Back

Returning for his second consecutive Conference on World Affairs, Tony Doggett is both a Foreign Service Officer and an aspiring singer-songwriter. Last year Tony recorded his second album, Please Don't Send Me to Zaire, a musical memoir of his adventures living and working in the Third World. His 1996 album, Every Dog Has His Day, was recorded and released in Zimbabwe. Doggett's career as a program officer with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has taken him to Niger (1982-86), Egypt (1986-90), Cote d'Ivoire (1993-94), and Zimbabwe (1994-96). He has also served in Washington variously as desk officer for Egypt, Yemen-Oman-Jordan, Cameroon, and Cambodia. For the past three years he has headed up the European budget and strategy division of USAID's Europe and Eurasia Bureau, which covers the Balkans. In April he assumes responsibility as the director of USAID's Haiti Task Force, which will undoubtedly yield material for another song or two. Doggett presently lives in Arlington, Virginia with his wife and four children. He graduated from the University of Colorado in 1974.
