The European Technical Advisers was a private American advisory organization created in the spring and summer of 1919 by Herbert
Hoover, head of the American Relief Administration, in response to concerns that post-peace treaty demobilization of the Central
European network of military advisers would leave a serious vacuum in the coordination of highly-complicated economic and
technical functions. Technological novelty, governmental disorganization and international antagonisms, as well as wartime
disruption of industrial infrastructures, were major problems threatening the rapid re-establishment of economic stability
in the area.
