BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

Frances Gladys Knight was born on July 22, 1905 in Newport, Rhode Island and grew up in New York City. She took a secretarial course at Hunter University, and later studied journalism at New York University. Knight started her career doing secretarial and editorial work. She married publisher Wayne W. Parrish in 1935, The couple moved to Washington, D.C. when Parrish became editor of American Aviation Publications. Frances used her maiden name in her work life after marriage.

In 1949 Knight was hired by the State Department as a radio information specialist with the Office of International Information (later the U.S. Information Agency). In 1952 she was appointed assistant deputy administrator of the Bureau of Security and Consular Affairs where she assisted Administrator Scott McLeod with the security program within the State Department. Through this work she became familiar with the operations of the Passport Office and its Director Ruth Shipley picked Knight as her replacement when she retired in 1955.

Knight ran the Passport Office until her retirement in 1977. During her tenure the office was noted for being highly efficient during a period of unprecedented growth in the number of Americans traveling overseas. Other administrative issues included the development of a machine-readable passport, and the fight against document fraud. The fraud issue led Knight to suggest the creation of a national identification card for each citizen, which was vociferously opposed by civil-liberties groups in 1975.

Knight believed the government had the moral responsibility and legal right to protect the public from dangerous philosophies and ideas such as Communism. She denied passports and visas to such people, and would occasionally appeal directly to Congress if she was overruled by her superiors. The Passport Office also collaborated with the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the surveillance of Americans abroad, most notably in the case of H. Stuart Hughes of Harvard University. Knight’s actions earned her both powerful friends and critics. She regularly went public with complaints State Department staff who did not agree with her political views. Knight fought two successful campaigns to retain her position past the mandatory retirement age of 70, finally retiring in 1977 after Secretary of State Cyrus Vance refused a third extension.  

Knight continued her political activities in retirement, promoting causes such as immigration reform and consulting with the transition teams of Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush.  She died in Bethesda, Maryland at the age of 94 on September 11, 1999.
