These papers recount John Lind's diplomatic mission to Mexico in 1913-1914, during the Mexican Revolution, as the personal
representative of President Woodrow Wilson, and reflect his 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
for the period 1917-1931 that relate to Mexico. Included are diplomatic dispatches, correspondence, reports from others involved
in Mexican affairs, printed materials, and copies of official documents.
The heart of the papers are the diplomatic dispatches, in which government officials in Washington, D.C., and Lind and other
diplomats in Mexico City and Veracruz kept each other informed of local developments. There is 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; and numerous related matters.
After Lind's return to the United States in 1914, the papers document his participation in diplomatic negotiations following
the U.S. occupation of Veracruz, his activities as a liaison between Emiliano Zapata and the State Department, U.S. relations
with the government of Venustiano Carranza, General John J. Pershing's 1916 punitive expedition against Francisco (Pancho)
Villa, Mexico's role in World War I, and other developments in the revolution and in relationships among Mexico, America,
and Great Britain.
Correspondents include Secretary of State William Jennings Bryan, Nelson O'Shaughnessy, Federico Adams, James N. Galbraith,
George R. Hackley, Sloan W. Emery, Louis d'Antin, Robert H. Murray, William A. Burnside, Arnold Shanklin.
