    I used to run into Richard Queen in the corridors of the State Department and chat. I saw his health deteriorate over the years from the effects of multiple sclerosis, his gait increasingly unsteady even with the aid of a cane. Richard was one of the 52 American diplomats taken hostage by Iranian militants in late 1979. He was 28 then. A cheerful and pleasant fellow, Richard died of MS in 2002, at age 51. Doctors speculated his hostage ordeal might have triggered the disease that killed him.

    An interesting read
