A collection of material related to the life and work of American dipolomat John Henry Hobart Peshine.
John Henry Hobart Peshine (1847-1928) was an American military officer and diplomat. Peshine was born in Newark, New Jersey and at the age of 15 was appointed midshipman at the U. S. Naval Academy, but resigned in 1864 and accepted a commission in the Army. From 1893 to 1897 he served as military attaché at the court of King Alfonso XIII of Spain; during that time he provided the Department of State with detailed information on the Spanish military establishment. Peshine then served in the Philippines during and after the war with Spain; he retired from active duty in 1903 due to ill health and died in Santa Barbara, California, in May 1928.
