About this Item

[12], 364 pages. Frontis. Illustrations. Footnotes. Bibliography. Index. Numerous index references to Theodore Roosevelt. Richard E. Welch, Jr., (1924-1989) taught history at Lafayette College and was the author of a number of works on Nineteenth Century American politics and imperialism. One scholarly reviewer has noted that "We are, however, indebted to Professor Welch for spelling out so clearly the Half-Breed response to the challenges Americans faced during the Gilded Age and part way into the Progressive Era, for we can see only too well how out of step an inflexibly conservative bias is when rapid change is taking place. . This is a book of substance, and the chapters on Hoar's struggle with the imperialists of the McKinley-Roosevelt era are especially worth reading in the light of our own equally frustrating struggle with the hawks of today. George Frisbie Hoar (August 29, 1826 - September 30, 1904) was a prominent American politician and United States Senator from Massachusetts. Hoar was born in Concord, Massachusetts. He was a member of an extended family that was politically prominent in 18th and 19th century New England. Hoar graduated from Harvard University in 1846, then studied at Harvard Law School. He joined the Republican Party shortly after its founding, and was elected to the Massachusetts House of Representatives (1852), and the Massachusetts Senate (1857). He represented Massachusetts as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from 1869 through 1877, then served in the U.S. Senate until his death. Hoar was long noted as a fighter against political corruption. He argued in the Senate in favor of Women's suffrage as early as 1886. As a member of the Congressional Electoral Commission, he was involved with settling the highly disputed U.S. presidential election, 1876. He authored the Presidential Succession Act of 1886. After the Spanish-American War, Hoar became one of the Senate's most outspoken opponents of the imperialism of the McKinley administration. Bookseller Inventory # 74679
