Dwight Morrow
Dwight Morrow
By Harold Nicolson
Harcourt, 1935, 425 pp.

A careful, sometimes brilliant, but on the whole not very interesting biography of the late Ambassador to Mexico. The author's feeling for Dwight Morrow's childhood is authentic; but when he follows his subject into the law and Wall Street he is handicapped by an inevitable lack of knowledge about the practises of pre-war American business life. The chapters on Morrow's service in Mexico and at the London Naval Conference are important to students of foreign affairs.
