Overview

The papers in this collection recount John Lind_s diplomatic mission to Mexico in 1913-1914 during the Mexican Revolution. Lind was President Wilson_s personal representative to Mexico, and the documents in the collection reflect Lind_s continued involvement and interest in Mexican affairs subsequent to that time. They comprise all of his papers for the years 1913-1916, the majority of which concern Mexico, plus those items from 1917-1931 that relate to Mexico. The heart of the collection are the diplomatic dispatches, in which government officials in Washington and Lind and other diplomats in Mexico City and Veracruz kept each other informed of local developments. In the collection, researchers will find extensive information on: Economic, social, political, military, and religious conditions and events in Mexico; Diplomatic negotiations with the government of Victoriano Huerta; British involvement in the Mexican oil industry; Lind_s recommendations for diplomatic strategy and tactics, particularly those aimed at helping the Constitutionalists remove Huerta from power
