The Letters and Journal of Brand Whitlock

Appleton-Century, 1936

The memoirs of America's wartime representative in Belgium are very readable. The Journal, covering the years 1914-1921, is concerned principally with the war and its aftermath. The Letters -- dealing largely with literature, municipal politics, the progressive movement in America, and travel -- go from 1894 to the year of his death, 1934. The Journal is particularly valuable for its frank account of the work of the Commission for Relief in Belgium.
