William Sterling Cole (April 18, 1904 – March 15, 1987) was an American politician, lawyer and civil servant, who served as the first Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency from 1957 to 1961. Before his appointment to the IAEA he was a Republican member of the United States House of Representatives from New York.


W. Sterling Cole was born in Painted Post, New York. He graduated from Colgate University in 1925 and Albany Law School in 1929. Cole practiced law in Bath, New York.[1]

A Republican, Cole was elected to Congress in 1934 and served from January 3, 1935 until his resignation on December 1, 1957.
