Henry Alfred Kissinger (born Heinz Alfred Kissinger on May 27, 1923) is a German-born American bureaucrat, diplomat, and 1973 Nobel Peace Prize laureate. He served as National Security Advisor and later concurrently as Secretary of State in the Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford administrations. He is best known for opening negotiations with Chou En-Lai to pave the way for the opening of diplomatic relations between the US and the People's Republic of China, as well as for receiving Nixon's letter of resignation as President of the United States.
Since leaving office, Kissinger has worked as a consultant, has given writing and speaking engagements, has taught at Georgetown University in Washington, DC, and has been a special foreign policy adviser to several American presidents and presidential candidates. In 2002, he briefly chaired a special committee to investigate the September 11 attacks, but stepped down at the end of that year rather than make public the client list of Kissinger Associates.
Henry Kissinger in Worldwar
When the Admiral Peary arrived in Home's orbit, medical staff attempted to revive The Doctor from cold sleep, but his heart had stopped and they were unable to restart it. Concluding that the a technology might someday be developed to revive him, they put The Doctor back into cold sleep.
Though not identified by name, "The Doctor" is described well enough to leave virtually no room for doubt about Kissinger's identity.
In the early chapters of Homeward Bound, characters briefly discuss the possibility of reviving The Doctor at a later date. This option was not raised in the novel's later chapters, where there was no further talk of reviving The Doctor.
