30/09/1943 Sumner Welles, friend and confidante of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, resigns abruptly as Undersecretary of State. Officially, the reason given is policy differences between Welles and Secretary of State Cordell Hull over relations with pro-Axis governments in Latin America. The actual reason was the threat by former ambassador William Bullitt – who hungered for Welles’ (and Hull’s) job - to expose Welles’ homosexuality. FDR never forgave Bullitt and even refused him permission to enlist in the U.S. Army afterward. (Bullitt ended up joining the Free French forces under de Gaulle.)
