Auguste R. Lindt, 94, a Swiss diplomat who served as U.N. high commissioner for refugees in the 1950s. He was appointed to head the U.N. refugee agency in 1956, and days later he began to mobilize an assistance program for 200,000 Hungarians who fled to Austria and Yugoslavia to escape Soviet repression. The following year he oversaw the agency's involvement in helping more than 260,000 Algerian refugees in Morocco and Tunisia. He served as the U.N.'s top refugee official until 1960.
