John Hay: Diplomacy in the Era of American Imperialism

John Hay’s story continues with a lecture by Colby-Sawyer College Professor Randall Hanson, whose areas of expertise include American Diplomatic History and the histories of Central and South America. Professor Hanson will present an account of John Hay’s diplomatic career and asks what Hay’s vision was for the role of the relatively young United States, upon entering the world stage.  

This program is part of Diplomacy: Then and Now, a series that examines the history of some of the country’s biggest diplomatic efforts and explores the importance of diplomacy in today’s world. Diplomacy: Then and Now is presented by The Fells Historic Estate and Gardens and funded by a New Hampshire Humanities Community Project Grant.
