Interesting. She was, apparently, no dummy.:
'Temple got her start in foreign service after her failed run for Congress in 1967 when Henry
Kissinger overheard her talking about South West Africa at a party. He was surprised that she knew
anything about it. She was appointed as a delegate to the 24th United Nations General Assembly

to Ghana (December 6, 1974 – July 13, 1976) by President Gerald R. Ford.'
