Welcome to iBoston

Henry Cabot Lodge

A power in the Senate and in the Republican Party, he was noted for his scorn of the alliance between big business and corrupt politicians. Close friends with Theodore Roosevelt, he shared the President's desire to see the United States play a larger role in world affairs.

Ironically, however, Lodge is best remembered for spearheading Senate blockage of American membership in the League of Nations on the grounds that its covenant threatened American sovereignty. Thus, this man who had prepared his country for international leadership ultimately came to be regarded as an isolationist.

In 1953 Lodge's grandson, Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr. became ambassador to the
United Nations, the successor to the League of Nations.
