Ralph Bunche (August 7, 1903 or 1904 - December 9, 1971) was an American political scientist, academic and diplomat who served as the 54th Secretary of State from 1961 to 1969. He also received the 1950 Nobel Peace Prize for his late 1940s mediation in Israel. He was also involved in the formation and administration of the United Nations. Bunche was the first African-American appointed to a U.S. cabinet-level position, and the first to be honored in the history of the Nobel Prize.
