Paul H. Boeker, 64, a retired Foreign Service officer who served as ambassador to Bolivia and Jordan, died of a brain tumor Saturday at his home in San Diego.

Born in St. Louis, Boeker graduated Phi Beta Kappa and magna cum laude from Dartmouth College. He earned his master's in economics from the University of Michigan.

Boeker joined the Foreign Service in 1961. His career included postings on the State Department policy planning staff under secretaries of state Henry A. Kissinger and George Shultz. From 1980 to 1983, he was director of the Foreign Service Institute, which trains government employees on foreign affairs and languages.

Boeker was ambassador to Bolivia from 1977 to 1980. From 1984 to 1987, he served as ambassador to Jordan. After retiring in 1988, Boeker became president and chief executive of the Institute of the Americas, a nonprofit San Diego-area networking organization that serves the U.S., Canada and Latin America.
