US: Who is Mark Keith Benenson?

Bill Ratliff asks: Does anyone know the relationship of Mark Keith Benenson to Amnesty International founder Peter? Between 1966 and 1981 he served as board member, then successively as general secretary, chairman, vice-chairman and counsel to Amnesty International's American section.

RH: Mark Keith Benonson was born in New York City in 1929. I cannot find the direct relationship, but it is clear that one belonged to the British, the other to the American branch of the same family.  They must have been good friends.
