Jean Adrien Antoine Jules Jusserand (18 February 1855 – 18 July 1932) was a French author and diplomat. He was the French ambassador to the United States during World War I.

Born at Lyon, Jusserand entered the diplomatic service in 1876. Two years later, he became consul in London. After an interval spent in Tunis (Tunisia was at that time a French protectorate), he returned to London in 1887 as a member of the French Embassy.

In 1890, Jusserand became French minister at Copenhagen. In 1902, he was transferred to Washington, where he remained until 1925.

During the Polish-Soviet War, Jusserand took part in a diplomatic mission to the Second Polish Republic.


Jusserand was a close student of English literature who produced some lucid and vivacious monographs on comparatively little-known subjects:
