Ambassador Dumba

Konstantin Dumba

Konstantin Theodor Dumba (also Constantin Dumba) (1856-1947) was the last Austro-Hungarian ambassador to the United States. He served from 1913-1915, succeeding the 20-year ambassador Ladislaus Hengelmüller von Hengervár. Due to a series of scandals during the lead up to World War I that showed he was involved with espionage, Dumba was declared persona non grata in 1915 by President Woodrow Wilson.

His father was the Greek-Austrian magnate Nicolaus Dumba.
