In 1974, Baruch Korff “retired” once again to his farm in Rehoboth, and wrote, The Personal Nixon, which was published that same year. Although he had entered politics as a speechwriter for a Democratic congressman, after Watergate, Republican presidents and senators asked him to participate in diplomatic missions on their behalf.

Zamira Korff and Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, the Shah of Iran from 1941 to 1979.  The shah’s successes in modernizing Iran infuriated many fundamentalist religious leaders in his country. United behind Ayatollah Khomenini, the fundamentalists overturned the government and the shah fled the country. He died in exile the next year.
