Maurer, Ion Gheorghe

Romanian politician (b. Sept. 23, 1902, Bucharest, Rom.-d. Feb. 8, 2000, Bucharest), as a member of the then-illegal Communist Party from 1936, was interned for antigovernment activities during World War II but, after the postwar replacement of the Romanian monarchy with a communist-led government, rose in influence, eventually serving as foreign minister (1957-58), titular head of state (1958-61), and prime minister (1961-74). Maurer, who was widely regarded as a moderate, retired in 1974, an action generally attributed to his disapproval of Pres. Nicolae Ceausescu's increasingly autocratic policies
