September 16, 2011 - U.S. Institute of Peace is  saddened to learn of the passing of Malcolm Wallop, former U.S. senator from Wyoming.  USIP was privileged to work with Sen. Wallop when he served on the Task Force on the United Nations, which the Institute facilitated in 2005, at Congress’s request.  He was a valuable contributor to the Task Force’s final report and took a special interest in peacekeeping.  As part of his service on the Task Force, Sen. Wallop traveled to Haiti and subsequently encouraged USIP to create a Haiti Working Group, which it did in 2006.  The U.S. Institute of Peace extends its sincere condolences to the family and friends of Sen. Wallop.

Sen. Wallop served in the U.S. Senate from 1977 to 1995.
