JOHN CUDAHY
5x7 photo inscribed signed as US Ambassador
Photograph inscribed and signed: "For Edward Hoffmeister/from John Cudahy/American Ambassador". B/w, 5x7. John Clarence Cudahy (1887-1943), Wisconsin realtor, meat packing executive and big game hunter, served in the US Army in World War I. His unit was sent to northern Russia in 1918, and fought a victorious battle with Red Army troops on Armistice Day (November 11, 1918). Disillusioned by the experience, Cudahy wrote a book about it: Archangel: the American War with Russia (1924). Cudahy was the author of several books, most of which concerned his experiences in expeditions to Africa. President Roosevelt appointed Cudahy to three ambassadorships: Poland (1933-1937), Ireland (1937-1940) and Belgium and Luxembourg (January to July, 1940). After requiting himself well in the first two posts, the outspoken Cudahy earned the State Department's extreme displeasure after returning from Belgium, which had just fallen to German invasion. At a press conference in London, he disputed Churchill's account of Belgium's surrender, urged Britain to ease its blockade of the European Continent to prevent famine there, and said that German soldiers in Belgium had treated civilians better than US soldiers might have done. Cudahy published a personal account of his experiences in Belgium, The Armies March, which included an interview with Hitler. Lightly creased at top left corner. Bottom edge slightly chipped. Otherwise, fine condition.
