MC Univ. of Virginia: “In a rare trip overseas, President Coolidge personally traveled to Havana”

Submitted by on August 29, 2015 – 12:37 am

(MILLER CENTER)-So embittered were most Latin American leaders over America’s policies that the republics of the Western Hemisphere assembled for their triennial conference in Havana, Cuba, in 1928 eager to demand changes in American conduct. In a rare trip overseas, President Coolidge personally traveled to Havana to address the conference and extend an olive branch.

Afterward, Kellogg had his legal adviser draft a white paper that argued against direct military intervention in Latin America. Although not a change in policy, it reflected a dawning awareness of the need for change, which would finally come when President Franklin Roosevelt announced a “Good Neighbor Policy” of nonintervention in 1933.
