Dr. E. Ralph Perkins, former Chief of the Foreign Relations Division, directly supervised the preparation of this volume. He was assisted by the present Chief of the Division, S. Everett Gleason, by Fredrick Aandahl, and by former staff member, Almon E. Wright.
The compilers of the volume were David H. Stauffer and Mr. Wright. Mr. Stauffer was primarily responsible for documenting American policy toward Mexico, the republics of Central America, and the Caribbean area. Mr. Wright’s work encompassed the relations of the United States with the nations of South America and with Panama. Documentation on the regional policies of the United States toward the other American republics was the joint effort of Messrs. Wright and Stauffer.
The Publishing and Reproduction Services Division (Jerome H. Perlmutter, Chief) was responsible for the technical editing of the volume.
